Kristin Lehman (AMC’s “The Killing,” “The Sentinel”) has signed on to join the cast of the dark comedy “Arthur Newman, Golf Pro” at Cross Creek Pictures says Variety.
Colin Firth stars as Wallace Avery, a man who hates his job and is despised by his family. He decides to fake his own death and create a new identity, along the way meeting a young woman (Emily Blunt) with her own troubled past.
The pair start breaking into empty homes to pose as the absent owners. Lehman will play Firth’s ex-wife, who lives with their son and her new husband.
Dante Ariola directs from a script by Becky Johnston. Johnston, Brian Oliver and Alisa Tager will produce with shooting to commence this month in North Carolina.
