A trio of actors are now in negotiations to star in Rosanna Arquette’s next directorial effort. Susan Sarandon, David Arquette and Adam Brody are in talks to star in the dramedy Hemlock Drive. The Wrap reports that the film centers on an eccentric mother in Connecticut who learns she is dying and brings her three adult children back home for a weekend.
Sarandon is in talks to play the mother, while David Arquette is eyeing the role of a man who owns a nearby bar. Brody is negotiations for the part of Sarandon’s son. The script was written by Jennifer Carta and Mandy Steckelberg, and marks the narrative feature directorial debut of Rosanna Arquette, as she previously helmed the documentaries Searching for Debra Winger and All We Are Saying. Given the Terms of Endearment-esque nature of Hemlock Drive’s plot, it’s easy to see Arquette’s attraction to the project. Shooting begins this September in Louisiana.
