Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams, Jay Baruchel and Jordana Brewster (The Fast and the Furious) are starring in the indie-horror road trip movie Random Acts of Violence, now shooting in Toronto.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, the Elevation Pictures movie also stars Niamh Wilson (Maps to the Stars) and reteams Baruchel with longtime writing partner Jesse Chabot.

Baruchel is doing triple duty, producing, directing and starring in the project that follows comic book creator Todd Walkley (Williams), who along with his girlfriend Kathy (Brewster), assistant Aurora (Wilson), and best friend Ezra, played by Baruchel, go on a road trip from Toronto to New York City for Comic-Con, only to face adversity along the way.

Baruchel is known for voice-starring in DreamWorks’ acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon movies and for his comedies, This Is the End on the big screen and the FXX comedy Man Seeking Woman.

Noah Segal and Randy Manis share producer credits on Random Acts of Violence, with Williams, Chabot, Ricky Tollman and Jonathan Bronfman executive producing.
