Paul Dano (“There Will Be Blood,” “Little Miss Sunshine”) will star in and executive produce the offbeat romantic comedy “Gigantic” for Machine Made Media, Killer Films & Epoch Films reports Reuters.
Written by Aselton and Adam Nagata, the script revolves around a mattress salesman and a young woman he meets at his store.
Zooey Deschanel will also star in the indie feature from first-time director Matt Aselton. Production is tentatively set for early March in New York.
Dano will follow that up with indie feature “The Good Heart” which revolves around an abrasive barman (Brian Cox) and a young homeless man (Dano) who becomes his protege.
Shooting is scheduled for New York and Iceland at the end of April.
