Tim Robbins has signed on to star with Mark Ruffalo in Thanks for Sharing. The project marks the directorial debut of writer-producer Stuart Blumberg, who was nominated for an Oscar this year for co-writing The Kids Are All Right. The comedy was written by Blumberg and Matt Winston, which revolves around "characters in a 12-step program for recovering sex addicts in New York City." Filming is slated to start in the fall.
The film is being produced and finance by Gilbert Films. Gary Gilbert and Jordan Horowitz are producing along with William Migliore and David Koplan for Class 5, with partner Edward Norton serving as executive producer.
Here is what Gilbert had to say about the project:
“We are delighted to once again be working with Stuart as he makes his directorial debut on this very exciting project. On The Kids Are All Right, he clearly demonstrated an incredible talent for creating exceptional roles while telling original, important and thought-provoking stories.”
I really enjoyed The Kids Are All Right, so I am excited to see what Blumberg can do in the directors chair. Ruffalo and Robbins are both great actors. Unfortunatley, Robbins has not had many great films as of late. What are your thoughts on this casting news?
