Vince Vaughn, Lou Taylor Pucci and Kelli Garner have joined the cast of “Thumbsucker,” the Mike Mills feature that just started production in Beaverton, Ore.
Troika rounds out a cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Tilda Swinton and Vincent D’Onofrio. Matthew McConaughey, who was circling a role in the pic (Daily Variety, June 15), has opted out because of a scheduling conflict.
Bull’s Eye Entertainment is financing and producing the pic, which is adapted from a novel by Walter Kirn.
The producers are Anthony Bregman of This Is That and Bob Stephenson of Cinema-Go-Go. Exec producers are Bob Yari and Cathy Schulman of Bull’s Eye; This Is That’s Ted Hope and Anne Carey; and Jay Shapiro of Cinema-Go-Go.
Story concerns a compulsive thumbsucker, played by Pucci. Swinton and D’Onofrio play his eccentric parents; Garner is his love interest, Vaughn his debate coach and Reeves his orthodontist.
Vaughn, Pucci and Garner were repped by UTA. Garner will appear in “The Aviator”; Pucci last appeared in “Personal Velocity.”
