Grant Gustin, Nick Robinson Starring in William H. Macy’s ‘Krystal’

Grant Gustin (“The Flash”), Nick Robinson (“Jurassic World”), William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, T.I., Kathy Bates and John Leguizamo are starring in the independent dramedy “Krystal” with Macy directing.

Great Point Media is producing with principal photography starting in April in Atlanta. The film is being produced by “Dallas Buyers Club” producer Rachel Winter and Dan Keston, who have been developing the project since 2002.

Winter initially brought the project to Macy for him to star in back in 2005. Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve are executive producers and the film is being fully financed and produced in association with Great Point Media.

Written by Will Aldis, the story centers on a young man (played by Robinson) who has never had a drink in his life and upon meeting the woman of his dreams — an ex-hooker-stripper-junkie-alcoholic — pretends to be in Alcoholics Anonymous to try and woo her.

“We are so excited to be working with William H. Macy on this film” said Halmi, chairman of Great Point Media. “With his creative talent at the helm and this incredible cast, we know this film is destined for greatness. We are confident and enthusiastic about bringing this film to the global market.”

“Krystal” is Macy’s third film as director following “The Layover” and “Rudderless.”

Winter most recently produced “Stealing Cars,” which will be released in early April and stars Emory Cohen (“Brooklyn”), Mike Epps and John Leguizamo. She’s also developing the untitled LeBron James biopic, which she set up at Universal with LeBron James and Maverick Carter as producing partners as well as a feature based on the life of Evel Knievel for Paramount which William Monahan will write

Keston is also a producer on “Stealing Cars,” which won The Zeitgeist Award at The Los Angeles Film Festival and is being distributed by Sony.

Macy directed his first feature film in 2014 with music drama “Rudderless.” “And I’m dying to do it again,” he told Variety.

He directed his second film last year with “The Layover,” a road trip sex comedy film starring Alexandra Daddario, Kate Upton, Matt Barr, Matt L. Jones, Rob Corddry, Kal Penn, Molly Shannon and himself.
