Tanner Hall Reopens in New Medium


“Tanner Hall,” a never-made UPN pilot, is finding new life as an indie feature, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Chris Kattan, Amy Sedaris and Tom Everett Scott have been cast in the feature, being directed by Tatiana von Furstenberg and Francesca Gregorini.

Also in the cast are Tricia Mara (Urban Legends: Bloody Mary), Brie Larson (Hoot), Georgia King (Wild Child), Amy Ferguson (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) and Shawn Pyfrom (“Desperate Housewives”).

The script, written by von Furstenberg and Gregorini, is a coming-of-age story set in a boarding school. Four teenage girls navigate adolescence while the adults in their world — the parents and teacher — struggle with their own midlife hurdles.

The movie, with a budget of less than $10 million, is shooting in Rhode Island.
