Woody Harrelson is in talks to star in “Hidden Figures” director Ted Melfi’s new drama “Fruit Loops” for Fox 2000 and Chernin Entertainment.
The story centers on a group of mental patients who band together when their hospital suddenly sells. Harrelson would play Colonel Leonard F. Cubby, who suffers from severe PTSD from his tours in Vietnam.
Melfi wrote and will direct the project as his immediate next feature with filming aiming for a May start. Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping will produce.
