Oscar-nominated Little Miss Sunshine star Alan Arkin is set for Christine Jeffs’ indie feature Sunshine Cleaning, joining Amy Adams, Emily Blunt and Clifton Collins Jr., reports Production Weekly.
Written by Megan Holley, the project is a character piece about Rose Lorkowski. Tired and frustrated by her job cleaning other people’s homes, anxious to earn more money to send her eight year-old son Oscar to private school, Rose goes into business with her unreliable sister Norah doing biohazard removal and crime scene clean up. In the process of their new business, the sisters come to terms with the messiness of their own lives and begin to move beyond it.
The film will be shot in and around Albuquerque starting next week.
