Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson have been cast as leads in feature thriller Lips Like Sugar, which will be directed by Grammy winner Brantley Gutierrez and has been written by Anthony Tambakis.
Set against the backdrop of the punk and skate worlds of West Los Angeles during the 1984 Olympic Games, the story follows the friendship of two teenage girls from different walks of life.
As city officials focus on the Olympics, the lives of two former detectives (Harrelson and Wilson) become intertwined when one of the girls goes missing.
Wedding Crashers, Midnight in Paris and The Royal Tenenbaums star Wilson can currently be seen in Paint. He also stars in Disney’s upcoming The Haunted Mansion and the second season of Loki for Disney+.
Oscar nominee Harrelson, star of Zombieland, True Detective and Three Billboards, is starring in HBO’s White House Plumbers.
Harrelson produces the film along with Post Film’s Russ Posternak, Freestyle Picture Company’s Kevin Chinoy and Francesca Silvestri, 7 Deuce’s Jeremy Plager, Greg Lauritano, Subtractive’s Kyle Schember, and Zac Adams. Additional casting is underway.
Oscar nominee Will Butler (Her) is set to compose the score, with production to begin later this year. XYZ Films is executive producing and handling worldwide sales.
