Cannes: 'Good Kids' Cast to Include Nicholas Braun, Zoey Deutch
Good Kids, the teen coming-of-age comedy on which writer Chris McCoy will make his directorial debut, has rounded up a cast that includes Nicholas Braun (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures), Craig Roberts (Neighbors) and Israel Broussard (The Bling Ring).
Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures will be handling international sales at the Cannes Film Market on the movie, which is being produced by Depth of Field’s Chris and Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano. Voltage Pictures’ Dominic Rustam is onboard as executive producer. Babacar Diene will oversee the project for Voltage.
McCoy’s script, which made the 2011 Black List, follows four overachieving high-school students living on Cape Cod who, upon graduating from high school, realize that they’ve missed out on key life experiences by always being the good kids and decide to reinvent themselves.
WME Global is repping domestic rights on the film, which is set to begin production in September in Massachusetts.
McCoy is represented by WME Entertainment, Gotham Group and Jackoway Tyerman.
