Three added to 'Weekender' cast

Karl Golden's acid house buddy movie

LONDON -- Jack O'Connell, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Emily Barclay have packed their bags for Karl Golden's "Weekender," joining a burgeoning cast that already boasts Ben Batt, Stephen Wight and Tom Meeten.

Golden's movie is the story of two friends' adventures, played by O'Connell and Lloyd-Hughes, set against the backdrop of the hedonistic world of warehouse parties during the U.K.'s acid house explosion in 1990.

Penned by actor and writer Chris Coghill, the film is produced by Benchmark Films/Foundation Films' Ian Brady and Stephen Salter and Alliance Films' Robert Walak and executive produced by Xavier Marchand, David Hayman and Mark Jaffray.

DJ and producer Terry Farley is aboard as a creative consultant on the film.

The film will be distributed here by Momentum Pictures, Alliance Films in Canada and Aurum Producciones in Spain.
