Helen Hunt, Ana de Armas and John Leguizamo have joined Ready Player One star Tye Sheridan on The Night Clerk, which commenced production this week in Utah.
Sheridan, WulfPak Productions’ David Wulf, and Highland Film Group are producing, while Santosh Govindaraju, Dan Reardon and Robbie Brenner are on board as executive producers.
Convergent Media is financing the film, and Highland handles international sales and jointly represents US rights with The Gersh Agency.
