Nathan Lane joins ‘English Teacher’

Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear star in Artina Films comedy

With production on Relativity Media’s untitled Snow White pic winding down, thesp Nathan Lane is setting his sights on a very different project, as he’s in negotiations to join Julianne Moore and Greg Kinnear in Artina Films’ indie comedy ”The English Teacher.”

Veteran TV helmer Craig Zisk (”Weeds”) is making his feature directorial debut with the film, which was written by Dan and Stacy Chariton.

Moore stars as Linda Sinclair, a high school English teacher whose life is upended when a former star pupil returns to her small town after failing miserably as a playwright in New York.

Lane will play a drama teacher who Moore’s character enlists to help her with the play.

Artina Films’ Naomi Despres, Robert Salerno and Matthew Chausse are producing alongside Ben LeClair. Ron Curtis will exec produce the pic, which Kim Fox of Inferno Entertainment is handling international sales for. Production starts next month in Gotham.

Lane, who’s currently filming Tarsem’s big-budget take on the Snow White fairy tale alongside Julia Roberts, is in negotiations to star in and exec produce Douglas McGrath’s untitled comedy pilot, which just received a greenlight from USA. Series will find the Tony winner playing an unlucky actor whose Broadway aspirations must be put on hold when his father’s declining health forces him to return to his Texas hometown.

Lane is repped by ICM and Anonymous Content.
