Recent Oscar winners Octavia Spencer, Sam Rockwell, and Allison Janney are set to star in the independent comedy “The Heart” which will begin filming at the end of the year.
Rockwell and Spencer will play people desperate for cash and take the job of delivering a human heart from New York to Florida in 24 hours. When they realize the delivery is destined for a black-market buyer who illegally skipped the donor list, they attempt to reroute the heart to its rightful recipient.
The pair are soon hunted down by criminals, including the buyer (Janney) who is the drug-dealing ex-boss of Spencer’s character. Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (“The Descendants”) will direct from their own script while Kevin Walsh and Ryan Stowell are producing.
