Tammy Blanchard and Zachary Quinto are among a slew of new cast to join Route One Entertainment and Ocean Blue Entertainment’s dramatic comedy Tallulah, which has begun shooting in New York City.
Additional arrivals who join the previously announced Ellen Page and Allison Janney are Evan Jonigkeit, David Zayas, Uzo Aduba and John Benjamin Hickey.
Good Universe handles international sales and ICM Partners represents US rights.
Sian Heder will direct Tallulah from her screenplay about a free spirit whom everybody thinks has kidnapped a baby after she rescues the child from her reckless mother.
The woman pretends the baby is hers with the mother of her ex-boyfriend. When the baby is returned to her rightful mother the three women forge an unbreakable bond.
Route One and Ocean Blue finance Tallulah and Heather Rae is producing with Route One CEO Russell Levine, Maiden Voyage’s Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus and Todd Traina.
The production is partnering with Cutting Edge Group and music producer Michael Lloyd to create songs inspired by the screenplay.
