Herrmann, Spindel Are “Born to Be a Star”

Edward Herrmann and Tyler Spindel will co-star in “Born to Be a Star” for Sony Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter

The comedy follows a small-town Midwestern nerd (Nick Swardson) who discovers his parents were famous porn stars.

Herrmann will play Swardson’s now-straitlaced father. Spindel will play the assistant of a washed-up adult-film director trying to squirm his way back into the industry. Christina Ricci also stars.

Adam Sandler co-wrote the film and Tom Brady (“The Hot Chick”) will direct. Allen Covert, Barry Bernardi and Jack Giarraputo will produce.

Shooting starts this month.
