Parker Posey Enters “Highland Park”

Parker Posey has joined the cast of the dark comedy “Highland Park” for the Bureau of Moving Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

In the story, a high school teacher (Danny Glover) wins the lottery and uses the largesse to restore the local library and energize the struggling community in the process.

Posey will play Shirley Paine, one-time homecoming queen and now the opportunistic mayor of Highland Park.

Andrew Meieran is directing and producing from a script he co-wrote with Christopher Keyser. Filming is currently underway in Detroit.
