EXCLUSIVE: John Gallagher Jr., Britne Oldford, Genevieve Angelson, and Alexander Hodge have joined BCDF Pictures’ Which Brings Me To You.
They join previously announced cast members Lucy Hale and Nat Wolff. Peter Hutchings (The Hating Game, Then Came You) is directing the screenplay written by Keith Bunin (Onward, Horns), adapted from the acclaimed novel by Julianna Baggott and Steve Almond.
Which Brings Me To You tells the story of Jane (Hale), a freelance journalist, and Will (Wolff), a photographer, who are immediately drawn to each other at a mutual friend’s wedding. After the pair sneak off to hook up in the coat room, all signs point to an empty one-night stand. Instead, over the next 24 hours, they share stories of their most embarrassing sexual encounters, first loves, heartbreak and whirlwind romances, discovering each other through hilarious and sometimes tragic tales. Gallagher will play Wallace, a celebrated but tortured writer and love interest of Jane. Oldford will portray Audrey, a talented but struggling musician who forms a serious relationship with Will. Angelson plays Eve, a Brooklyn bohemian who takes Will under her wing during his undergrad years. Hodge plays Elton, a mysterious character who brings Jane along with him on his college adventures.
Claude Dal Farra and Brian Keady of BCDF Pictures are producing. Mister Smith International handled global sales on the film. Filming is underway in New Jersey.
