Jennifer Garner, Tye Sheridan Join Drama

Jennifer Garner, Tye Sheridan and Maika Monroe will star in Relativity’s surf drama “The Tribes of Palos Verdes.”

D.J. Caruso is directing the film from a script by Karen Croner, adapted from Joy Nicholson’s 1998 novel. Production has been set to start in February, and no producers are on board yet.

The book, set in the upscale beach town of Palos Verdes, Calif., follows two teenagers whose home lives devolve after they move to the town from Michigan with their parents. The female teen, portrayed by Monroe, turns to surfing as an escape.

Robbie Brenner and Kevin McKeon will oversee the film for Relativity.

Garner was most recently in “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” and “Men, Women and Children.”

Monroe’s credits include “The Guest” and “Labor Day.” Sheridan starred in “Mud,” “Joe” and “The Stanford Prison Experiment,” which will premiere at Sundance.

WME reps all three actors.
