C. Thomas Howell has joined the cast of indie crime drama “Magic Hour,” produced by Busted Buggy Entertainment and Sunside Film.

The project is helmed by Cole Mueller from his own script; production wraps in late March after shoots in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Anaheim. Story follows a young man who falls in with the local crime family in Venice Beach in the early ’90s.

Other cast members are Trevor Morgan, William Russ, Kris Lemche, Josh Emerson, Courtney Daniels, Kevin McNamara and Mark Alan.

Sunside produced Mueller’s first film, “Green Guys.”

Howell will be seen next in “The Amazing Spider-Man.” He is repped by Glick Agency and managed by Henraux Management.
