Stockwell joins ‘Middle of Nowhere’

Film being produced, financed by Bold Films

John Stockwell will direct Susan Sarandon and daughter Eva Amurri in “Middle of Nowhere,” a bittersweet romantic comedy about a clashing mother and daughter. Michelle Morgan wrote the script.

Pic is being produced and financed by Bold Films (“Bobby”). Michel Litvak and David Lancaster produce with Stockwell and Nicole Rocklin. The film will begin production in September.

Most recently seen in “Saved” and “Education of Charlie Banks,” Amurri plays Grace, a young woman whose irresponsible mother (Sarandon) blows her college fund on her younger sister’s beauty pageant campaign.

Stockwell is coming off the Fox Atomic thriller “Turistas.” Amurri just completed the Vadim Perelman-directed “In Bloom” with Uma Thurman and Evan Rachel Wood for 2929 Productions. Sarandon just wrapped the Paul Haggis-directed “In the Valley of Elah” for Warner Independent, and “Mr. Woodcock” for New Line. She’s about to start “Speed Racer” for Warner Bros.

Gary Michael Walters will exec produce “Middle of Nowhere” and Brian Ross and Richard Walters will co-produce.

ICM packaged it and Inferno will sell overseas territories at Cannes.
