Parker Posey, Ken Jeong to Star in Indie Dramedy 'Elsewhere'

Parker Posey and Ken Jeong are set to star in indie dramedy Elsewhere. Aden Young, star of SundanceTV's Rectify, will lead a cast that also includes Beau Bridges, Jacki Weaver and Jackie Tohn.
Elsewhere tells the story of Bruno (Young), who is hopelessly attached to the seaside cottage that he and his late wife built together. When his in-laws evict him, Bruno vows to get it back at any price. He sets a risky plan in motion, posing as a handyman for the cottage’s intriguing new tenant (Posey). In the process, his life — and his intentions — turn upside down.
Elsewhere will be the English-language debut for writer-director Hernán Jiménez, the filmmaker behind Costa Rica’s official submission for last year’s best foreign-language film Oscar, Entonces Nosotros.
Chris Cole of Evoke, who worked with Jimenez on Entonces Nosotros, will produce along with J. Todd Harris (The Kids Are All Right) of Branded Pictures Entertainment. Colossal production company Brightlight Pictures will also produce.
Elsewhere is set to begin production this month in Vancouver and is eyeing a 2018 release.
