Gary Cole, Jennifer Coolidge and Agnes Bruckner will star in “Edge of Seventeen” writer-director David Moreton’s road-trip comedy “Say Hello to Stan Talmadge” says Reuters.
Set in 1979 and told in flashback, the film follows the misadventures of the title character (Cole), an estranged ex-husband who tries to reunite his family with a cross-country motor-home trip to a “Family Feud”-style game show called “Beat Your Neighbor.”
Coolidge plays his boozing, acid-tongued ex-wife. Bruckner plays his daughter, who is traumatized by the disastrous trip.
Tina Holmes (“Half Nelson”) plays Stan’s new wife, who comes along for the ride, and Jordan Bridges (“Mona Lisa Smile”) plays the game show host.
“Hello” is shooting on location in Azusa, California.
