Rachael Taylor (Transformers, Shutter) will star in Splinterheads, a carnival-set comedy written and directed by Brant Sersen, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Taylor will play a carnie con artist who dupes and then forms a relationship with a local twentysomething slacker, played by Chicago Second city veteran Thomas Middleditch. The film will play against the colorful backdrop of performers and showmen.
Darren Goldberg and Chris Marsh will produce via their nascent Atlantic Pictures; Anisa Qureshi also will produce.
Production on Splinterheads is set to begin next month. Christopher McDonald and Lea Thompson also star.
