Content Media is introducing the comedy to buyers at Cannes.

Jeremy Irons

Jeremy Irons and Jack Huston will star in the father-son buddy comedy An Actor Prepares, which Content Media is introducing to Cannes buyers this week.

Steve Clark directs the film from a screenplay he wrote with Thomas Moffett. David M. Rosenthal is producing with 3 Arts Entertainment’s Tom Lassally and Will Rowbotham.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin this autumn on the story about a philandering actor and his estranged, academic son who reconnect during a cross-country road trip to a wedding. CAA represents North American rights.

“This is pure performance and comedy gold,” said Content president of film Jamie Carmichael. “We can’t wait to see Mr Irons and Mr Huston go head to head in this wonderfully funny and emotional crowd-pleaser – and we’re thrilled to be working with Steve, David and our friends at 3 Arts.”
