Ray Liotta, Jean Smart set for Arteta comedy
Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, Jean Smart and M. Emmet Walsh have joined Michael Cera in “Youth in Revolt,” the Miguel Arteta-directed comedy for Dimension Films.
Pic is based on the C.D. Payne novel, which was adapted by Gustin Nash, Arteta and Cera. David Permut is producing, and Steve Longi is co-producing with Miranda Freiberg.
“Youth in Revolt” is one of TWC’s priority titles at Cannes, where the company is selling overseas territories on that film, “Piranha 3-D,” “All Good Things” and “Shanghai.”
Cera plays teenager Nick Twisp, who meets the girl of his dreams on a family vacation and destroys the trip trying to be with her.
Buscemi, who plays the teen’s father, most recently directed and starred in “Interview” and is recording a lead voice in Disney’s “G-Force.” He just finished shooting the Florian Gallenberger-directed “John Rabe.”
