Domhnall Gleeson, Thomas Haden Church, Christina Applegate Starring in Rom-Com ‘Crash Pad’ (EXCLUSIVE)

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Domhnall Gleeson, Christina Applegate, Thomas Haden Church and Nina Dobrev are starring in the romantic comedy “Crash Pad,” which has started shooting in Vancouver, Variety has learned exclusively.

Wonderful Films, Indomitable Entertainment, and Windowseat Entertainment are the production companies. Kevin Tent, the Oscar-nominated editor on Alexander Payne’s”The Descendants” and “Nebraska” is making his directorial debut with a Black List script by Jeremy Catalino.

Gleeson stars as a hopeless romantic who thinks he’s found true love with an older woman, played by Applegate — only to learn that she’s married and that his fling is merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband, played by Church. He threatens to blackmail her by telling her husband but his plan backfires when the husband decides the best way to get back at his wife is to move in with Gleeson’s character and adopt the slacker’s life of debauchery.

Payne, who directed Haden Church in “Sideways,” is executive producing. Producers are William Horberg of Wonderful Films and Lauren Bratman. Besides Payne, the other exec producers are Dominic Ianno, Jon Ferro and Stuart Pollok of Indomitable Entertainment, Joseph McKelheer and Bill Kiely of Windowseat Entertainment, and Vicki Sotheran of Sodona Entertainment.

“As an editor, Kevin Tent has helped craft some of the great performances of the last decades,” said Horberg. “He is a natural storyteller, and I can’t wait to see what he does with this wonderful cast and Jeremy’s hilarious script. And of course he can always fix it in post!”

“I agree with Bill, except for the last thing,” said Payne.

Gleeson is represented by Paradigm and The Agency.  Church is represented by CAA and Finley Management. Applegate is represented by CAA and Management 360. Dobrev is represented by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
