Luke Wilson and Judy Greer have joined the cast of Measure Of A Man, the independent adaptation of Robert Lipsyte’s YA novel One Fat Summer. The project, which is now shooting in Rhode Island with Jim Loach directing, also stars Donald Sutherland, Blake Cooper, Liana Liberato, Beau Knapp, Danielle Rose Russell, Luke Benward, and Sam Keeley.
The 1970’s coming-of-age story was adapted by David Scearce (A Single Man). Wilson and Greer will play Cooper and Liberato’s parents, who are going through a difficult time in their marriage, a situation that is impacting their children.
Christian Taylor of Taylor Lane Productions is producing in association with Weedon Media and Great Point Media. Jim Reeve and Robert Halmi of Great Point Media serve as Executive Producers.
ICM Partners and CAA are co-repping the domestic rights for the project.
Wilson, who will next be seen in Concussion, is repped by CAA and attorney Bob Wallerstein. Greer, who may best be known by her most recent work on the TV series Archer and Married, is repped by CAA and Principato-Young.
