Thesps commit to ‘Scituate’

Dina Spybey (“SubUrbia”), Lane Smith (“My Cousin Vinny”), Hedy Burress (“Foxfire”) and Geoffrey Blake (“Forrest Gump”) have agreed to star in the indie pic “Somehow Scituate” for ML Prods.

Pic, under helmer Ron Burrus, is a romantic comedy about a young guy who falls in love with a girl, but is unable to commit because of a bizarre event that happened when he was in high school.

The title comes from the small town on the south shore of Massachusetts where the comedy takes place.

Pic is being financed through a limited partnership set up by ML Prods., which is made up of producers Michael Lewis and Michael Landes.

Lewis penned the script and Landes will also star in the project.

“Scituate” starts lensing in Boston toward the end of this week.

Attorney Wayne Alexander brokered the deals for the producers with all four thesps and set up the limited partnership.
