Asa Butterfield is in talks to join Benaroya Pictures' upcoming comedy King of the Kastle. Clive Owen and Jacki Weaver are attached to star.

The comedy follows a womanizer (Clive Owen), who gets wrapped up in a teen's blackmale plot. Asa Butterfield will play the teen.

This will be Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka's directorial debut. They will helm from a script they wrote. The pair wrote The Sitter and are working on Jackie Chan's action comedy Skiptrace. Asa Butterfield previously starred in Martin Scorsese's Hugo and Ender's Game.

Michael Benaroya is producing alongside Jonathan Gordon. No production schedule has been announced.
