Chris Klein and Freddie Prinze Jr along with other screen stars have been attached to film Frank Whaley's "New York City Serenade."
"New York City Serenade" sure gets merrier this time with the arrival of a number of stars to highlight the project as Chris Klein and Freddie Prinze Jr. have already been billed to play the two leading roles with Alexander Chaplin, Heather Bucha, and newcomer Ben Schwartz in supporting parts while Jamie-Lynn Sigler is in final talks to join the feature, so The Hollywood Reporter revealed.
Loosely based on the life of its director, Frank Whaley, the movie is a comedy set in the mid 1990s which tells about the friendship of two childhood friends, an aspiring filmmaker named Owen (Prinze Jr.), and Ray (Klein), a drummer who plays the dive bar circuits. The longtime relationship sadly gets strained because of an occurrence which leads them into a fight, prompting the two to part ways until an unexpected reunion 18 months later.
Klein is last seen playing alongside big names like Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid in Paul Weitz's "American Dreamz" released in April this year while Prinze Jr. has long shied away from the big screen since the 2004 flick of "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" yet is about to mark his return in "Brooklyn Rules" set to hit theatres by September.
