Hunt, Paul, Grace join ‘Decoding’

Tax incentive keeps dramedy in California

Helen Hunt, Aaron Paul (”Breaking Bad”) and Maggie Grace have joined the cast of indie drama-comedy “Decoding Annie Parker” alongside Samantha Morton in the title role and Christina Hendricks.

Lensing is set to begin later this month in Los Angeles.

“Decoding” is directed by Steven Bernstein from a script he co-wrote with Adam Bernstein. The story centers on the irrepressible Parker, a breast-cancer patient who stops at nothing to solve the mystery behind her illness despite the beliefs of the medical establishment.

Pic is produced by Clark Peterson, Stuart Ross, Keith Kjarval, Mary Vernieu and Ron Senkowski. Jonathan Brownlee and Sahil Chanana exec produce.

Based on a true story, project originated with Steven Bernstein and Clark Peterson.

The production was one of 27 named in June to receive the state of California’s tax credit incentive in the third year of that program — aimed at preventing production companies from moving their projects, jobs and spending out of the Golden State.

”Decoding” is the feature directing debut for Bernstein, who was the cinematographer on “Monster” and “Like Water for Chocolate.” Bernstein and Peterson collaborated on ”Monster” and several other projects.
