An interesting cast for Sins Of Our Youth is coming together, with Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class, Paranoia), Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Ally Sheedy (The Breakfast Club) set to star in the teen drama. The film is based on an original screenplay by Edmund Entin, with Gary Entin set to direct.
Sins of Our Youth is about four teenage boys who accidentally murder a young boy while recreationally shooting assault rifles. The film follows the perilous decisions they make in the wake of the murder, as they deal with desperation, paranoia, and fear that their lives are over due to the certain eventuality of the death penalty. Eventually the four teenagers construct a plan that leads them down an even darker path.
Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana: The Movie), Bridger Zadina (Terri), Grant Harvey (Save the Date) and newcomer Dani Knights are also set to star. Shooting will begin this week on location in and around Las Vegas, Nevada. Anthony Bretti is the executive producer and Frederick Levy is the co-executive producer.
There is a little gay interest in this, as this will be the second movie from Edmund and Gary Entin following Geography Club, which is about a group teens who set up a ‘Geography Club’ – something though know nobody else will want to join – as a cover for people secretly dealing with their sexual identities. The film was recently acquired by Breaking Glass for US release.
