Gleeson, Applegate To Get A “Crash Pad”

Domhnall Gleeson, Christina Applegate, Thomas Haden Church and Nina Dobrev are set to star in Kevin Tent’s romantic comedy “Crash Pad” for Wonderful Films, Indomitable Entertainment, and Windowseat Entertainment.

Gleeson plays a hopeless romantic who thinks he’s found true love with an older woman (Applegate), only to learn that she’s married and that his fling is merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband (Church).

He threatens to blackmail her by telling her husband, but the plan backfires when the husband decides the best way to get back at his wife is to move in with Gleeson’s character and adopt the slacker’s life of debauchery.

Tent, the Oscar-nominated editor of “The Descendants” and “Nebraska,” is making his directorial debut with a Black List script by Jeremy Catalino. Filming just began in Vancouver.
