Michael Ian Black (The State, Wet Hot American Summer, They Came Together) and Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) have joined the indie comedy ‘Slash’, currently filming in Austin. The cast also includes Sarah Ramos (Parenthood), Peter Vack (Mozart In The Jungle), Jessie Ennis (Veep) and Matt Peters (Orange Is The New Black).

Directed by Clay Liford (Earthling), who also wrote the screenplay, the coming of age comedy focuses on a teenage erotic fan fic author; the title is a reference to the fan fiction genre that imagines sexual relationships between fictional characters who aren’t canonically an item (think Kirk/Spock or Spider-Man/Batman). Michael Johnston (Teen Wolf) and Hannah Marks (Necessary Roughness) star. Melissa Breaux of Washington Square Arts & Films, Brock Williams of Boxcar Films and Jason Wehling of Arts+Labor are producing. Traci Carlson is co-producing.

Pyle is repped by UTA, McKeon/Myones Entertainment, and attorney Neil Meyer; Black is repped by UTA and Schachter/Brown Entertainment.
