Nick Wernham has tapped Alison Brie (AMC’s “Mad Men,” NBC’s “Community”), Justin Chatwin (Showtime’s “Shameless”) and Colin Hanks (Showtime’s “Dexter,” “Orange County”) to lead his quirky, romantic comedy ‘No Stranger Than Love.’
“‘No Stranger Than Love’ follows Lucy Sherrington (Alison Brie), a heart-breakingly attractive high school art teacher in the small, secluded village of Spot Valley, where there is not a male in town who is not secretly or openly in love with her. And who can blame them? She is kind to everyone, and helplessly sympathetic, yet romantically she keeps them all at a polite distance…until tonight. Tonight she has agreed to a rendezvous with Clint Coburn (Colin Hanks), the married high school football coach who’s been on a lustful quest in Lucy’s direction for the last five years. Just as they are about to begin their affair, Clint disappears down a hole that opens up in Lucy’s living room floor. But this is not just any hole. It is an inter-dimensional, one-way hole of infinite darkness that leaves Clint stranded and floating in oblivion.”
In this unpredictable love story, Lucy Sherrington must embark on a harrowing quest to rescue Clint Coburn and keep their love affair a secret, all the while avoiding a dark stranger in town, Rydell White (Justin Chatwin), who has one thing in mind: finding Clint Coburn.”
The film recently began shooting in Toronto with Wernham directing from a script by Steve Adams.
