Richard Dreyfuss and Danny Glover don’t get to make enough movies anymore, so it’s good news they’re teaming up for Killing Winston Jones, and according to Variety they’ll be joined by Danny Masterson and Jon Heder.
The indie dark comedy comes from a script by Justin T. Winter, which focuses on a sixth grade English teacher (Masterson) who is on a quest to get a recently built junior high gymnasium named as a memorial to his father… even though his dad’s not dead. Dreyfuss will pay Masterson’s not-so-late father, while Glover will play a rival who has his own plans for the gymnasium’s name. There’s no mention of what role Heder will have.
Who knew naming a gym could be so fraught?
Cameras start rolling Monday in Savannah, Georgia, with Joel David Moore directing. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s best known as an actor, who’s starred in the likes of Avatar and Dodgeball, as well as having a recurring role in TV’s Bones. He previously helmed Spiral.
