Johnny Weston Juliette Lewis

Jen McGowan on board to direct

Jonny Weston and Juliette Lewis are on board to star in the indie drama “Cal & Kelly.”

Jen McGowan is set to direct with Adi Ezroni and Mandy Tagger producing.

Story follows the relationship between a suburban-trapped mother and a wheelchair-bound young man who brings out her former self. Amy Lowe Starbin is penning the script.

Production starts next month in New York.

Weston has been on the rise since his big debut in “Chasing Mavericks” with Gerald Butler. He recently won the starring role in the Michael Bay-produced “Almanac” at Paramount, a film that is being compared to “Chronicle.” He is repped by ICM Partners and 3 Arts.

Lewis is starting to have a comeback on the prestige trail, most recently being seen in “Open Road.” Up next, she’ll appear in Weinstein’s “August: Osage County.” She is repped by DBA and Untitled Entertainment.
