EXCLUSIVE: Nick Frost (The World’s End), Hope Davis (Louder Than Words) and Adelaide Clemens (Rectify) have been set to star in the black comedy Look Away, in which Clemens will play a young woman suffering from so-called “selective blindness” that leaves her unable to see her own mother (Davis). In search of a cure, she sees a therapist (Frost), who’s in love with her and, having Asperger’s, is unable to empathize. Music video and commercial vets Monty Whitebloom and Andy Delaney, who go by the directing duo moniker of Big TV!, are helming from a script by Jennifer Schuur (Big Love). Project is produced by Lucy Barzun Donnelly and Alexandra Kerry for Locomotive, coming off their recent films Friends With Kids and HBO’s Golden Globe winning Grey Gardens telefilm. Big Love producer Peter Friedlander is exec producing Look Away, which begins filming in August in New York’s Hudson Valley. Frost is repped by UTA and Hamilton Hodell in the UK. Davis is repped by UTA and Kipperman Management. Clemens is repped by UTA and The Artists Partnership in the UK.
