Owen, Keener log on to ‘Trust’

David Schwimmer to direct dark drama

David Schwimmer will direct Clive Owen and Catherine Keener in “Trust,” a dark drama about the damaging effects an online sexual predator has on a family. Millennium Films will produce and finance.

Schwimmer, who previously directed the laffer “Run Fat Boy Run” and co-directed HBO’s “Little Britain USA” series, wrote the story for the drama, and Andy Bellin wrote the script.

Owen and Keener will play the parents of a 14-year-old girl who are stunned to discover she has been victimized by an adult who gained her trust posing as a teenager on a chat room. Newcomer Liana Liberato will play the daughter.

Millennium’s Avi Lerner will produce with Heidi Jo Markel, Dana Golomb and Bob Greenhut. Exec producers are Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, Schwimmer and Tom Hodges.

Shooting begins Nov. 9 in Michigan.

Owen just opened in “The Boys Are Back” and Keener’s latest, “Where the Wild Things Are,” opens Friday.
