The film, which begins shooting this week, marks the feature directorial debut of Tom Dolby and Tom Williams.

Joseph Cross, Devon Gray, Jayma Mays, Chris Mulkey, Alexia Rasmussen and Rutina Wesley round out the cast.

The story takes place over a four-day summer holiday at a couple's (Clarkson, Mulkey) Northern California estate overlooking Lake Tahoe, where their two sons and assorted friends and partners have been invited for a long weekend.

Cross and Booth play the sons.

Mike Ryan (Junebug) is producing, while Mark Johnson (Breaking BadThe Notebookis exec producing.

The film’s main Tahoe location is the house featured in the 1951 Elizabeth Taylor classic A Place in the Sun.
