Michael Angarano, Sam Rockwell and Jemaine Clement have signed to star in Gentlemen Broncos, Jared Hess’ comedy being produced by Mike White and Ben LeClair, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The script, written by Hess and his wife, Jerusha Hess, follows a high school outcast who attends a camp for writers where his story gets ripped off by a legendary fantasy novelist.
Angarano plays the teen, while Clement is the author named Ronald Chevalier. Rockwell will play the fictional story’s title character who appears in book-come-to-life sequences under two guises: one in the teen’s story and one in the author’s story.
Production is due to start in March.
