Filmmaker Gus Van Sant has set Gabe Nevins to star in “Paranoid Park,” based on Blake Nelson’s dark coming-of-age tale.
David Cress and Neil Kopp produce with French company MK2, which is financing. William Morris Independent and MK2 rep domestic rights.
Jake Miller, Taylor Momsen, Lauren McKinney and Daniel Lui also star.
Story revolves around a teenage skateboarder who accidentantly kills a security guard. His otherwise typical life spins into a strange new reality of confusion, cover-up and guilt.
Pic marks Van Zant’s first feature writing and directing project since “Last Days.”
MK2 also has international rights and is repping the project at AFM.
