Brendan Fraser has joined while Vanessa Hudgens is in final negotiations to star in the indie drama “Gimme Shelter” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story centers on a pregnant, homeless teen (Hudgens) who flees her abusive mother and seeks out her biological father (Fraser) who had a youthful fling with her mother. He first takes the girl in but then throws her out when she refuses to abort her child.
Ron Krauss is writing and directing the project with shooting to kick off in Connecticut at the end of May. Kraus, Jeff Rice and Dama Claire are producing.
