Dennings and Lucas in Daydream Nation


Kat Dennings and Josh Lucas have been cast in the indie romance film Daydream Nation.

The film, directed by Michael Golbach from his own script, begins shooting in Vancouver on Saturday.

According to Variety, the “story centers on a disaffected high school senior who finds herself deposited along with her widowed father in a desolate Canadian hamlet where boredom leads her into an affair with a teacher and into a more promising romance with a druggie teen.”

Hayden Panettiere and Kieran Culkin were previously attached to the film.
