John Goodman, Ed Asner and Jane Alexander are joining Paul Dano and Zooey Deschanel in the indie romantic comedy “Gigantic” for Epoch Films and Killer Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
Dano will play Brian, a depressed mattress salesman whose quest to adopt a Chinese baby is sidetracked when he falls for Happy (Deschanel).
Asner will play Brian’s pot-smoking, gangsta rap-loving father, and Alexander is set as his long-suffering mother. Goodman will play Happy’s brilliant, domineering dad.
Shooting begins today in New York. Director Matt Aselton co-wrote the script with Adam Nagata.
