Mumblecore veteran and recent Emmy-winner Kent Osborne (Uncle Kent) and Dylan Sprouse (Disney’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” Big Daddy) have joined the cast of BoulderLight Pictures’ thriller Dismissed, which marks the feature directorial debut of Benjamin Arfmann, who previously directed the acclaimed SXSW short “Random Stop.”
“In the film, an idealistic, straight-laced English teacher (Osborne) is drawn down a nightmarish rabbit hole by an honor roll student (Sprouse) who will stop at nothing to get an ‘A.’”
Rounding out the cast will be Randall Park (The Interview), Chris Bauer (“True Blood”) and Alycia Delmore (Humpday).
Dismissed will be produced by J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules of BoulderLight Pictures (Contracted) who are teaming up with Sev Ohanian (Fruitville Station). The film was written by Brian McAuley. Executive producing is Pang Ho-Cheung, whose Making Film Limited is financing the entire picture.
The film will shoot this month in Los Angeles with world sales on the film being handled by BoulderLight and Bravos Pictures Limited.
