Adrien Brody is set to topline as a transient high school teacher in Paper Street Films’ “Detachment.”
Brody will star opposite Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, Blythe Danner and James Caan in the pic that depicts three weeks in the lives of high school teachers, administrators and students through the eyes of substitute teacher Henry Barthes, played by Brody. Tony Kaye helms the pic, now lensing in Queens and Long Island.
Paper Street’s Austin Stark, Benji Kohn, Chris Papavasiliou and Bingo Gubelmann are producing, with Greg Shapiro and Peter Sterling as exec producers.
ICM packaged the pic and is handling North American rights.
