Lou Taylor Pucci stars as the title character, a young man with autism who leaves his sheltered world behind, determined to live life on his own terms as he searches for a job and a girlfriend. Seth Green will play Luke's friend Zach, who guides him on this journey. Kristin Bauer and Cary Elwes also co-star.
Alonso Mayo will write and make his directorial debut with The Story of Luke, which is based on his own experiences at his mother's rehabilitation school in Lima, Peru. Nina Leidersdorff, Fred Roos, and Julien Favre are producing.
Production is scheduled to begin later this month, in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario.
