Gabe Nevins has been hired to star in Gus Van Zant's French comedy, Paranoid Park for MK2.

The film is based on Blake Nelson's dark coming-of-age tale, says Variety; it revolves around a teenage skateboarder who accidentantly kills a security guard. His otherwise typical life spins into a strange new reality of confusion, cover-up and guilt. The other cast includes Jake Miller, Taylor Momsen, Lauren McKinney and Daniel Lui.

Van Zant is writing and directing Paranoid Park; no production schedule is set.
