'Super 8' thesp joins Tim McCann's teen drama
“Super 8″ thesp Ryan Lee is set to join Nick Krause (“The Descendants”) in Tim McCann’s teen drama “White Rabbit.”Written by Anthony Di Pietro, indie pic follows a high school teen (Krause) who begins having visions of a rabbit that he killed when he was a young boy. The rabbit, along with other imaginary characters, turn menacing in the hopes of pushing him over the edge and luring the bully into one last fatal act of revenge. Lee will play Krause’s best friend, while “True Blood” thesp Steve Trammell will co-star as the protag’s father. Robert Yocum of Burning Sky Films, Shaun Sanghani of SSS Entertainment and Jacky Morgan are producing. Lee previously played a scene-stealing teen in J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8.” He will soon be seen in Judd Apatow’s Universal comedy “This Is Forty,” in which he plays Melissa McCarthy’s son and love interest to Maude Apatow’s character. Lee is repped by Paul Young and Rebecca Rosenberg at Principato-Young Entertainment along with ICM Partners and Felker Toczek.
