Kevin Spacey to star in ‘Shrink’

Jonas Pate drama to co-star Robin Williams

Kevin Spacey will lead the ensemble cast of indie “Shrink,” a Jonas Pate-directed drama that has just begun production in Los Angeles.

Spacey, who’s coming off “21” and “Recount,” plays a shrink to the stars. Saffron Burrows, Jack Huston, Griffin Dunne, Robin Williams, Pell James, Robert Loggia, Keke Palmer, Laura Ramsey, Gore Vidal, Dallas Roberts and Mark Webber play a mosaic of Hollywood characters who are his clients..

Unable to come to grips with a recent personal tragedy, the shrink is a chronic pot smoker who no longer cares about his personal appearance and has lost faith in his ability to help his patients.

Thomas Moffett wrote the script. The film is a co-production between Ignite, Ithaka and Trigger Street. Ithaka’s Braxton Pope is producing with Trigger Street’s Dana Brunetti.
