     November 7, 2012


Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Michelle Pfeiffer (Scarface) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) are attached to star in the dysfunctional family comedy, Man Under.  From screenwriter Ann Cherkis (The Secret), Man Under centers on a Yonkers-based family whose lives turn upside-down when New York City’s Museum of Modern Art displays photographs of them and turns them into overnight celebrities.  Robbins, himself an Oscar-nominated director, will helm the pic.  Hit the jump to get caught up with the talent.

Chloe-Grace-Moretz-man-underDeadline reports that Robbins will direct and star in Man Under, along with co-stars Pfeiffer and Moretz.  Robbins last directed 1999’s Cradle Will Rock and was nominated for Best Director for the 1995 effort, Dead Man Walking.  He more recently directed a couple of episodes for Treme.  His recent feature acting credits include Green Lantern, Thanks for Sharing and the upcoming Back to 1942.

Pfeiffer, who recently starred with Moretz in Dark Shadows, also appeared with Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks in this year’s People Like Us.  Her next effort will be Malavita, Luc Besson’s mafia/witness protection thriller starring Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones.

Moretz, who is currently filming Kick-Ass 2 for director Jeff Wadlow, will next be seen with the rest of Hollywood in the ensemble comedy, Movie 43.  That picture will be followed up by Kimberly Peirce’s remake of the Stephen King horror story adaptation, Carrie.  Then, the young actor’s schedule gets crazy with possible roles in The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Rut, The Drummer, Dance of the Mirllitons, Maggie and Trolls.
