Scott Torn By An August Drama

Adam Scott and Rip Torn will join Josh Hartnett and Naomie Harris in the indie feature “August,” directed by Austin Chick says The Hollywood Reporter.

Howard A. Rodman’s script follows an aggressive, young dot-com entrepreneur (Hartnett) in New York struggling to keep his head above water as the bottom of the market begins to fall out in the weeks leading to September 11th.

Scott will play Hartnett’s brother, while Torn is their father. The film will be shot on location in New York, with principal photography to begin April 16.
