Cannes: Voltage Charges Up Teen Comedy ‘Good Kids’

Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures is heading to Cannes with its latest project, “Good Kids.”

Pic stars Nicholas Braun (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”), Zoey Deutch (“Vampire Academy”), Craig Roberts (“Neighbors”) and Israel Broussard (“Bling Ring”) in a coming-of-age comedy written by Chris McCoy. Script was featured on the 2011 Black List.

McCoy will make his directorial debut on the film.

The story follows four overachieving high school students who, after graduation, realize that they’ve missed out on key life experiences by always being the good kids. They decide to reinvent themselves in order to enjoy their last time together before college.

Depth of Field’s Chris & Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano produce. Voltage Pictures’ Dominic Rustam is onboard as executive producer. Babacar Diene will also oversee the project for Voltage.

McCoy wrote for Marvel on “Guardians of the Galaxy” and is currently writing an untitled comedy for Imagine and Paramount.

Production is set to begin this September in Massachusetts.

WME Global is repping domestic rights, while Voltage Pictures is handling international sales.

Other pics on Voltage Cannes’ slate include Eli Roth’s “Knock Knock,” starring Keanu Reeves; dance pic “Breaking Through,” executive produced by John Legend; and sci-fi thriller “Prisoner of War,” which Voltage is producing alongside Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and 42’s Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh.
