will poulter were the millersIn We’re the Millers, Sudeikis plays “a veteran pot dealer who creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.”  Aniston plays the hooker who pretends to be his wife.  According to Variety, Poulter will play Sudeikis’ fake son.  Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball) is directing We’re the Millers, which starts shooting next month.

Liam Hemsworth stars as “a blue-collar guy who is blackmailed by his boss into spying on a rival company” in Paranoia.  Dreyfuss joins Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard, Lucas Till, and Julian McMahon in the supporting cast.  Robert Luketic (Killers) is directing for release on September 27, 2013.  Production begins next month.

Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning topline in Very Good Girls two recent high school graduates and lifelong friends who vow to lose their virginity before the summer ends.  Anton Yelchin was reportedly in talks to play the boy who comes between them, but Variety‘s report does not mention his involvement. Variety also has no details on Dreyfus’ role, but I don’t imagine he stepped in for Yelchin. Naomi Foner is set to start shooting her directorial debut next month.
