Class 5 Films and Olympus Pictures announced today that Alecia Moore (AKA Pink) has been brought on board to co-star in writer/director Stuart Blumberg's dramedy Thanks for Sharing. Blumberg, who was previously nominated for a 2010 Academy Award for his The Kids Are All Right screenplay, will direct Moore in an ensemble cast that also includes Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, Gwyneth Paltrow, Joely Richardson, Patrick Fugit and Josh Gad. Principal photography for Thanks for Sharing began in New York City in late September, and Moore joins the cast today.
The project is being produced by Bill Migliore and David Koplan for Class 5 Films, where Blumberg also serves as partner, and Leslie Urdang, Dean Vanech and Miranda de Pencier for Olympus Pictures, which is solely financing the film. Edward Norton will serve as executive producer.
Thanks for Sharing is a dramatic comedy about a group of unlikely friends brought together through their shared determination to recover from sex addiction and forge meaningful relationships for the first time in their lives.
Moore, who has had eleven Top Ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and won three Grammy awards, has her first featured role on the big screen. She plays Dede, a kindred spirit to Gad's character, Neil.
"Alecia could not be a more ideal fit for this role," notes Blumberg. 'She carries with her just the right combination of heart and edginess for the part of Dede, and we're incredibly excited to share her acting talent with audiences."
Voltage is exclusively handing foreign sales for Thanks for Sharing, with Graham Taylor of WME and Rena Ronson at UTA co-repping the film for domestic sales.
