Vanessa Hudgens and Brendan Fraser have joined the cast of writer-director Ron Krauss's indie drama Gimme Shelter.

Vanessa Hudgens will play a pregnant teen who becomes homeless after fleeing from her abusive mother. She decides to seek out her biological father (Brendan Fraser), who pressures her to have an abortion. When the young girl refuses to follow her father's demands, she once again finds herself living on the streets to survive.

Ron Krauss is eyeing an early May start date for Gimme Shelter.
