Frank Langella has joined Anton Yelchin and Zooey Deschanel on the Unified Pictures and Bron Studios romance The Driftless Area, which Radiant Films International is selling in Cannes.

Shooting is scheduled to start in Vancouver on May 14 on the story of a young romance threatened by a crook and his bag of loot.

John Hawkes, Alia Shawkat and Ciaran Hinds round out the key cast.

Zachary Sluser will direct and Unified’s Keith Kjarval produces with Aaron L Gilbert through Bron Studios in association with CW Media Finance. CAA packaged the project and represents US rights.

Nicole Romano at Anonymous Content manages Sluser and serves as executive producer.

“Frank Langella is a powerful character actor who elevates every project he is associated with and lights up the screen with his effortless acting skills,” said Radiant chief Mimi Steinbauer.

“As such, he is a welcome addition to The Driftless Area cast as the film begins production.”
