Nic Fackler has lined up both Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn for his directorial debut entitled Lovely Still. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Banks and Adam Scott have also joined the project.
Fackler wrote this holiday film about a senior bagger at a grocery store that finds love for the first time in his life. Landau will play the elderly bagboy, while Burstyn is set to play his love interest. Banks will be playing Ellen's daughter, and Scott has signed on as the storeowner.
Producer Lars Knudsen stated, "It's a testament to his talent, that at such a young age he has wooed actors like Martin and Ellen; he's one of those naturals who never went to film school. Maybe Nik is the next one to come out of Omaha."
The film will start shooting early next year.
