Michael Shannon Sets Ensemble For Directorial Debut Eric Larue


Judy Greer, Paul Sparks, Alison Pill, Tracy Letts, Annie Parisse, Kate Arrington and Alexander Skarsgard are set to star in the adaptation of Eric Larue, with Michael Shannon making his directorial debut on the film that is currently in production.

Written by Brett Neveu, the film is based on Neveu’s play of the same name and follows the mother of a 17-year-old boy, who shot and killed three of his classmates. As she faces a meeting of the mothers of the other boys, and a long-delayed visit to her son in prison, the story becomes not about the violence but about what we choose to think and do in order to survive trauma.
