Actors picking ‘Cherry’

Cast set for indie ensemble comedy

Rob Schneider, Tania Raymonde, Kristin Cavallari, Rumer Willis and Ryan Merriman will star in indie ensemble comedy “Wild Cherry” for Redwood Palms, Rampage Entertainment and Farpoint Films.

Dana Lustig will helm from Chris Charney’s script; shooting starts May 7 in Winnipeg. Gavin Wilding is producing with Kyle Bornais; Jesse Kennedy, Mike DiManno and Scott Reid exec produce with Evan Tylor.

Schneider will play the father of a high school senior who’s decided to lose her virginity to her boyfriend, the football’s team kicker.

Lustig’s credits included “Kill Me Later,” “Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber” and “The Wedding Bell Blues.” She’ll next direct “Rock and Roll Nanny” with Etchie Stroh producing.

Schneider next stars in “Big Stan” and “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan,” and he is currently finishing principal photography on “The Chosen One.”

Raymonde stars on “Lost” and recently wrapped “Still Waiting” for Lions Gate.
