I love a good dark comedy so Killing Winston Jones sounds like a good one based on the casting news. Variety reports that Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Masterson, Danny Glover and Jon Heder have joined the cast.
Joel David Moore (Bones, Avatar) is directing based on a script from Justin T. Winter. Story follows "a sixth-grade English teacher (played by Masterson) who's on a mission to get the newly constructed junior high gymnasium named after his father (Dreyfuss) despite the fact that the person so memorialized must be dead -- leading to a bitter contest over the naming rights with his old rival (Glover)."
Killing Winston Jones is being produced by RadioactiveGiant's Albert Sandoval and Daemon Hillin. This is the first feature film for the company. Tom Somerset and Peter Winther are serving as exec producers. Filming begins Monday in Savannah, GA. The film will be released in theaters and the typical platforms.
