The Wackness Gets Six


Ben Kingsley, Josh Peck, Famke Janssen, Mary-Kate Olsen, Olivia Thirlby and Method Man have been cast in Occupant Films comedy The Wackness.

Occupant partners Keith Calder, Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter are producing. Jonathan Levine (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) directs from his own script; filming recently started in New York.

The story, set in 1994, centers on a troubled teenage drug dealer and a drug-addled psychiatrist — after the former trades pot for therapy sessions, then falls for the doctor’s daughter.
