Newcomer Mackenzie Davis and “Scream 4” star Nico Tortorella are in negotiations for two key roles in filmmaker Drake Doremus’ untitled next feature says Variety.
The story follows a high school teacher (Guy Pearce) who’s tempted to cheat on his wife (Amy Ryan) with one of his students (Felicity Jones).
Davis will play Pearce and Ryan’s daughter, Tortorella will play a popular swim team jock with a reputation for sleeping around and being an asshole.
Doremus will direct from a script he co-wrote with Ben York Jones. Doremus’ upcoming romantic drama “Like Crazy” won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
