The romantic comedy Welcome to Pine Grove! has added Ann-Margret, Jane Curtin, Loretta Devine, Christopher Lloyd and Elizabeth Mitchell.
They join Ellen Burstyn and James Caan in the indie to be directed by Michael Lembeck and based on a screenplay by Donald Martin.
Welcome to Pine Grove! follows Helen Wilson (Burstyn), an independent widow who moves into the Pine Grove Senior Community and discovers it’s just like high school, full of cliques and flirtatious suitors.
Caan will play Dan Simpson, the hot new guy at Pine Grove and Burstyn’s love interest. Curtin will play the self-appointed ruler of the Queen B’s at Pine Grove, while Sally, to be played by Devine, is a free spirit who bonds with Helen.
Ann-Margret will play Margot, a bombshell looking for husband No. 6, while Arthur, to be played by Lloyd, is a new resident loving the ladies’ attention.
Harrison Powell, Dominique Telson and Fred Bernstein will produce, with Rick Jackson and Claudine Marrotte executive producing. Astute Films is financing the movie, which is now in production in Atlanta.
Ann-Margret most recently appeared in the 2017 film Going in Style, starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin. Curtin appears in the upcoming The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. Lloyd is known for his portrayal of the scatterbrained Dr. Emmett L. “Doc” Brown in the Back to the Future films and crazy Taber in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. And Grey’s Anatomy actor Devine has starred in over 60 feature films during a four-decade career.
Ann-Margret is repped by ICM Partners and AM Productions & Management; Curtin is with ICM Partners; Lloyd is repped by The Gersh Agency and Andrew Freeman, Personal Management; and Devine is with Innovative Artists and Essential Talent Management.
