Weirdsville picture
Production Weekly brings the news that Taryn Manning and Wes Bentley will topline the indie comedy "Weirdsville." Directed by Allan Moyle, the script of the film was written by Willem Wenneker.

The story is set in the small prairie-town of Weedsville, crammed with freaky oddballs, strange occurrences, and not a lot of ambition. Dexter and Royce are your typical disaffected slackers. Chances are they would have continued to drift through life in a dope-filled haze if Matilda, Royce's girlfriend, hadn't O.D.'d on their stash.
