Actors pulled to indie 'Tug'


Sam Huntington and Haylie Duff are in negotiations to star in "Tug," an indie film from writer-director Abram Makowka that will be one of the first features to film in Michigan since the announcement in April of the state's 40% film tax incentive program.

Set in small-town Michigan, "Tug" centers on a guy (Huntington) whose life begins to unravel when he is torn between staying with his current girlfriend or going back to his psycho ex (Duff).

TicTock Studios' Hopwood DePree and Rebecca Green are producing and financing. Production will begin in June.

Huntington is repped by UTA, Duff is repped by WMA and Curtis Talent Management. (partialdiff)
