Twilight star Ashley Greene, Haley Ramm and James LeGros will star in Anthony Burns’ 1980s-era coming-of-age drama Skateland, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Shiloh Fernandez is in final negotiations to play Ritchie Wheeler, a teen forced out of a job when his small-town roller rink shuts down. He faces tough decisions about his future, his parents’ divorce and complicated relationships with friends Brent (co-screenwriter Heath Freeman) and Kenny (Taylor Handley), his sister Mary (Ramm) and Brent’s sister Michelle (Greene). LeGros plays Brent and Michelle’s father.
Justin Gilley, Victor Moyers and Nicholas Jayanty are producing the Reversal Films/Freeman Film feature. Executive producer Brandon Freeman wrote the screenplay with his brother Heath and Burns.
Filming starts this month in Louisiana.
