Duff, Burstyn, Ross & Greta

Hilary Duff, Ellen Burstyn, Evan Ross and Michael Murphy have joined Nancy Bardawil’s interracial teen romance “Greta” for Whitewater Films says Reuters.

Duff will play the title role of a waitress who falls for an ambitious cook (Ross) at the restaurant where they work. But as their summer romance heats up, she has to overcome the concerns of her grandparents (Burstyn, Murphy) about her boyfriend’s criminal past.

The comic drama is now shooting in New Jersey. The film marks writer Michael Gilvary and music video helmer Bardawil’s feature debuts.
