Ritter, Weixler Join Peter

Jason Ritter (“Happy Endings”), Jess Weixler (“Teeth”), Jesse L. Martin (“Rent”) and Tracie Thoms (“Grindhouse”) have joined Jay DiPietro’s romantic drama “Peter and Vandy” reports Reuters.

Ritter and Weixler will play the title roles in a love story about the ups and downs of a young Manhattan couple. Martin plays Peter’s best friend, Paul, and Thoms plays his wife, Marissa.

The film shifts back and forth in time from their romantic beginnings and increasingly manipulative behavior to their ultimate reconciliation.

DiPietro adapted his 2002 Drama Desk Award-nominated play for his feature helming debut. The film is currently shooting in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
