Coming off the Fox Atomic thriller "Turistas", John Stockwell has secured his next directorial stint in a bittersweet romantic comedy entitled "Middle of Nowhere" which tells about a clashing mother and daughter.
Project has already picked up Oscar winner Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri to topline. The latter will portray a young woman named Grace whose irresponsible mother, played by Sarandon, blows her college fund on her younger sister's beauty pageant campaign.
Filming is scheduled to begin in September with Stockwell helming based on script written by Michelle Morgan as well as producing alongside Michel Litvak, David Lancaster, and Nicole Rocklin. Pic is being produced and financed by Bold Films while Inferno will sell overseas territories at Cannes Film Festival.
