Unified Pictures, Savage Bunny and Bron Studios have partnered to produce Trust Me, a dark comedy about the sordid world of child stars and the obsession with stardom.
Clark Gregg will direct from his screenplay the noir fable about a loser agent for young actors-and washed-up child star himself-who stumbles upon a brilliant 13-year-old prodigy (played by newcomer Saxon Sharbino) and then tries to close the mega-deal that will make her a star while managing her drunk volatile father, the poaching attempts of a more successful nemesis and a growing awareness that his innocent young starlet may not be at all what she seems.
Gregg (Marvel's The Avengers, Iron Man, The New Adventures of Old Christine) will lead an ensemble cast that includes Saxon Sharbino, Amanda Peet (Syriana, Please Give, Something's Gotta Give), Paul Sparks (Boardwalk Empire, Edge of Darkness, Rachel Getting Married), Felicity Huffman (Transamerica, Phoebe in Wonderland, Desperate Housewives), Allison Janney (The Help, Juno, American Beauty), William H. Macy (The Sessions, Fargo, Shameless), Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live, Year of the Dog, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), Niecy Nash (Reno 911!) and Sam Rockwell (Seven Psychopaths, Moon, Choke).
Principal photography began in Los Angeles on September 26.
Trust Me is being produced by Mary Vernieu and Clark Gregg under their new name, Savage Bunny, with Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios, and Keith Kjarval of Unified Pictures, with Margot Hand as Co-Producer and Sam Rockwell as Executive Producer.
