Ashley Judd, Demian Bichir Join Comedy ‘Good Kids’

Ashley Judd and Demian Bichir have come on board coming-of-age comedy “Good Kids,” which is starting to shoot in Massachusetts.

Voltage Pictures and Depth of Field are producing “Good Kids” which also stars Nicholas Braun (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”), Zoey Deutch (“Vampire Academy”), and Israel Broussard (“Bling Ring”). Chris McCoy is making his directorial debut as he helms from his own script, which was featured on the 2011 Black List.

“Good Kids” was part of Voltage’s slate at Cannes. WME Global is repping domestic rights and Voltage is handling international sales.

The story follows four overachieving high school students who realize that they’ve missed out on key life experiences by always being the good kids and decide to reinvent themselves before heading off to college.

Depth of Field’s Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano are producing with  Voltage Pictures’ Dominic Rustam. Justin Bursch is executive producing.

Judd, who stars in “Dolphin Tale 2,” will play a tennis-playing wife. Bichir portrays a tennis coach.

Dayo Okeniyi (“Terminator Genisys”), Julia Garner and Ginny Gardner have also joined the cast.
