Kevin James, Ben Chaplin, Emily Watson and David Henrie are all set to star in Alejandro Monteverde’s “Little Boy” for Metanoia Films reports Variety.

The $24 million family drama set in small-town America at the start of WWII. The story follows an eight-year-old with developmental problems whose father goes away to the war and he’s left to confront the cruelty of schoolmates and others.

Jakob Salvati won a nationwide casting search to play the boy and a eleven week shoot begins late August in Baja, California. Shooting will also take place around Rosarito beach, Ensenada, Tijuana and Tecate.
