Kyle Chandler, Mary Elizabeth Winstead Feeling 'Spectacular Now'


Kyle Chandler, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Bob Odenkirk and Andre Royo have joined the cast of James Ponsoldt's indie "The Spectacular Now," which Andrew Lauren Prods. ("The Squid and the Whale") has come on to fully finance.

A co-production between Shawn Levy's 21 Laps, Global Produce and ALP, pic stars Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller and Brie Larson, while Kaitlyn Dever, Masam Holden and Dayo Okeniyi are set to round out the cast.

Chandler will play Teller's dad, while Winstead will play his sister. Royo will play Teller's teacher and Odenkirk will play his boss. Holden will play Teller's friend, while Dever will play Woodley's friend.

Adapted from Tim Tharp's novel by "(500) Days of Summer" scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the coming-of-age tale follows Sutter Keely (Teller), a high school senior who only lives for the moment, and Aimee Finecky (Woodley), the mercurial introvert he attempts to "save" from life as a social outcast. As their relationship deepens, the lines between right and wrong, friendship and love, saving and corrupting, become inextricably blurred. Script was voted to the 2009 Black List.

Tom McNulty and Shawn Levy are producing with Michelle Krumm and Andrew Lauren. Neustadter and Weber will exec produce alongside Marc Shmuger, Matthew Medlin and Ruth Mutch. The Exchange is on board to sell foreign rights. UTA is handling domestic rights.

Production is currently under way in Athens, Georgia.

Thank you, Amazing Grace!  :)
