Comedian George Lopez has been submitted into the cast of Mark Pellington-directed dramedy "Henry Poole Is Here."
Looks like the road is not that rocky for George Lopez to walk on. Despite the cancellation of his eponymous TV series, the funnyman has delightfully signed on to star in drama comedy "Henry Poole Is Here", constructing a really busy schedule as he has also been cast in "Swing Vote" and "South of the Border."
Consisting starry cast of Luke Wilson, Adriana Barraza, Cheryl Hines, and Radha Mitchell, pic focuses on a man, played by Wilson, who learns that he only has six weeks to live. Wanting to spend his remaining days in seclusion, he then leaves his job, fiancee, and overbearing mother to settle in a suburbia to only discover that his plan to live out his days in quiet desperation gets disrupted, thanks to his quirky neighbors.
Assigned to direct is Baltimore-born filmmaker Mark Pellington who will carry out the duty based on original screenplay written by Albert Torres. Taking care producing matters are Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg with Wendy Chuck and Karen Steward serving as the film's costume designer and art director, respectively.
