Sundance starlet Mackenzie Davis (“Breathe In”), Nicholas Braun (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) and Josh Fadem (“The Eric Andre Show”) are in talks to star in Sony Pictures’ genre movie “The Kitchen Sink,” which Matt Tolmach is producing and Robbie Pickering will direct from a Black List script by Oren Uziel.

WME-repped Braun, who starred in Kevin Smith’s “Red State,” and is coming off supporting turns in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and “The Watch,” will next be seen in CBS Films’ comedy “Get a Job.”

Fadem is a writer and creative consultant for “The Eric Andre Show” who has acted in numerous short films and will soon be seen in a pair of indie pics. He’s repped by Paradigm and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
