Roberts, Highmore assigned ‘Homework’

Cast also includes Silverstone, Underwood, Reaser

Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore are starring in the now-filming teen romance “Homework,” with a cast that also includes Alicia Silverstone, Elizabeth Reaser, Blair Underwood and Rita Wilson.

Pic is produced by Gigi Films’ Gia Walsh and Kara Baker, Darren Goldberg and Mint Pictures’ P. Jennifer Dana.

Production is currently under way in New York for the movie, about a homework-averse high school student (Highmore) who strikes up an unexpected friendship with the girl he’s loved from a distance (Roberts). “Homework” is the first feature from writer-director Gavin Wiesen.

Michael Angarano (“Gentlemen Broncos”) is cast as a graduate of the high school, while Wilson and Sam Robards play the mother and stepfather, respectively, of Highmore’s character.

ICM handles North American sales for the title, with Goldcrest on board for international sales.

Shooting on “Homework” is anticipated to wrap this week.
