Uma Thurman will star in “Ceremony,” a Max Winkler-directed comedy produced and financed by Nala Films.
Michael Angarano is set to play a young man who falls for an older woman (Thurman) who is about to get married.
Nala Films’ Darlene Caamano Loquet and Emilio Diez Barroso will produce along with Polly Cohen Johnsen and Matt Spicer. Jason Reitman and Dan Dubiecki will be executive producers.
Winkler wrote the script. He most recently co-wrote, with Jonah Hill and Spicer, the Universal comedy “The Adventurer’s Handbook.”
Production on “Ceremony” begins Oct. 21 on Long Island.
Nala most recently wrapped Julianne Moore-Jonathan Rhys Meyers starrer “Shelter.” The supernatural thriller was directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein.
Thurman just finished playing the role of Medusa in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.”
