Andrew Garfield, Jennifer Garner and Marcia Gay Harden are all attached to star in “Back Roads” for Infinity Media reports Variety.
An adaptation of Tawni O’Dell’s bestselling novel, the Pennsylvania-set murder mystery would have Garfield playing a young man who is forced to care for his three younger sisters after their mother is sent to prison for killing her abusive husband.
Garner will play one of the family’s neighbors who becomes romantically involved with him. Harden will play his court-appointed therapist.
Adrian Lyne (“Unfatihful”) is set to direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with O’Dell. Michael Ohoven and Dan Spilo are producing and shooting is tentatively set for June.
