Scott and Torn Make Plans for August


Adam Scott and Rip Torn are joining Josh Hartnett and Naomie Harris in the indie feature August, being directed by Austin Chick.

The script, by Howard A. Rodman, follows an aggressive, young dot-com entrepreneur (Hartnett) in New York struggling to keep his head above water as the bottom of the market begins to fall out in the weeks leading to Sept. 11.

Scott will play Hartnett’s brother, while Torn is their father.

The film will be shot on location in New York, with principal photography to begin April 16.
