Amber Heard (Zombieland, Drive Angry 3D) and Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) have been cast in an indie drama entitled Syrup. The film is based on the book by Max Barry and deals with corporate intrigue in the beverage industry. Barry co-wrote the script with director Aram Rappaport.
Here is a description of the book:
The average person has three million-dollar ideas per year. Scat, an unemployed marketing graduate who knows you don't get noticed calling yourself Michael, has had his first. It's a sure-fire ticket to the life of shallow fame and fleeting celebrity he craves. But first he has to deal with 6, who is possibly the love of Scat's life or possibly ripping him off, and Sneaky Pete, marketing genius, refugee from Tokyo, and Scat's best friend—as far as Scat knows.
At this time we don't know what roles Heard and Fernandez will play, but it's most likely for the roles of Six and Scat, respectively. I like Heard and am excited to see her in more roles. What are your thoughts on this casting news?
