Judy Greer, Chloe Sevigny, Cybill Shepherd and Billy Dee Williams will star in the dark romantic comedy “Barry Munday” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Patrick Wilson plays the title character, a womanizer who gets attacked, loses his testicles and discovers that a brief fling with a woman (Greer) he can’t remember has led to a paternity suit.
Sevigny will play the woman’s flirtatious sister, who has a secret life and no compunctions about coming on to Munday. Shepherd will play their mother, and Williams is cast as the tough boss at Munday’s insurance company.
Chris D’Arienzo will serve as director and adapted the story from Frank Turner Hollon’s novel “Life Is a Strange Place.” Shooting is set to begin in next month in Los Angeles.
This marks Greer’s first leading feature film role after much high profile work in supporting parts. She recently was cast in the lead of ABC’s “Miss Guided” which began airing last week.
