Timothy Hutton Joins James Franco’s ‘The Long Home’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Timothy Hutton has joined the cast of the James Franco-directed drama “The Long Home,” starring Josh Hutcherson.

Based on the novel by William Gay, “The Long Home” is set in the 1940s in rural Tennessee, where a young man (Hutcherson) goes to work building a honky-tonk for a charismatic and diabolical bootlegger, unaware that the man had murdered his father 10 years prior. He runs into further trouble when he falls for the young woman the bootlegger is grooming to be a prostitute.

Franco is also expected to star, and will produce alongside Rabbit Bandini’s Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis. Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve are exec producing.

No distributor is attached yet.

Hutton can still be seen on ABC’s “American Crime,” where he has received strong reviews playing the grieving father following the murder of his son. He is repped by WME and Untitled Entertainment.
