A trio of young actors have landed the lead roles in the indie comedy Toy’s House. Per Variety, Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey), Gabriel Basso (The Big C), and Moises Arias (Hannah Montana) will topline the pic, which centers on three unhappy teens “who flee to the wilderness where they build a makeshift house and live off the land as masters of their own destiny.” Once there, though, they’re faced with the harsh reality of surviving on their own and realize they’re not ready to grow up just yet. The promising supporting cast includes Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Alison Brie (Community), Megan Mullaly (Will & Grace), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24) and Erin Moriarty (The Watch).
Chris Galletta wrote the screenplay, and Funny or Die Presents director Jordan Vogt-Roberts will be taking the helm. The premise brings to mind shades of a more comedic version of Stand By Me, and hopefully Vogt-Roberts can put together a fun coming-of-age story. Production is set to get underway in July in Cleveland.
