EXCLUSIVE: Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), Tom Felton (the Harry Potter films) & Ben Winchell (the upcoming Max Steel) have signed on for Feed, an indie drama from rookie helmer Tommy Bertelsen. Production is set to begin November 9 in Los Angeles on the pic, which marks Bellisario’s first feature-length screenplay.
The story revolves around Olivia (Bellisario) and Matthew Grey (Felton), 18-year-old twins born into a world of privilege and high expectations. There are almost no boundaries between them; even their dreams are connected. As the twins prepare for their last year of school together, an unexpected tragedy splits them apart, leaving the surviving sibling to learn how to live without their other half — or test how far they are willing to go to bring them back.
Indy Entertainment’s Ross Kohn and Nancy Leopardi are producing along with Bellisario and Bertelsen. Financing was provided by Bank Leumi USA with assistance from David K. Henry.
Bellisario, who stars as Spencer Hastings on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, is repped by Gersh, Management 360, and Loeb & Loeb. Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in all eight Harry Potter movies, is repped by Gersh, Management 360, Troika and Lichter Grossman. Winchell, who also did an arc on MTV’s Finding Carter, is repped by Gersh, Stokes Management and Myman Greenspan. Bertelsen is with Gersh and Grandview.
