Cameron Boyce and Tichina Arnold have joined the ensemble cast of an upcoming indie thriller.
Boyce will be one of the leads.
The two are joined by Nicole Elizabeth Berger, Jason Patric, Brianna Hildebrand and Aramis Knight (Into the Badlands, Ender’s Game).
The William Coakley-directed film will begin production soon in Los Angeles.
The film is described as a "teen dramatic thriller" centering on "artistic-loner Cal (Boyce) and lone-wolf, principled Cecily (Berger). Cal lusts after “hot girl” Gabriella (Hildebrand), while he is being bullied by her boyfriend, Vic (Knight), and his group of goons and jocks. Coach Wilkes (Patric), the Principal (Arnold) and Spanish teacher Talley (Mitch Silpa) – the adult figures at the high school – repeatedly fail the kids that they should be helping. With the insights of Cecily, Cal finds himself making pivotal life choices that force him to choose between what’s right and what he’s willing to stand up to and fight for."
