Last week, Ben Affleck and Zac Efron both started filming new movies in Atlanta, GA and, now, two more big stars will be joining them.
It has been confirmed Paul Rudd and Selena Gomez will headline the upcoming film adaptation of Jonathan Evison’s bestseller The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving. Filming begins in Atlanta this week.
Here’s the official snopisis:
For Ben Benjamin, all has been lost—his wife, his family, his home, his livelihood. Hoping to find a new direction, he has enrolled in a night class called the Fundamentals of Caregiving. There he learns the basics of the art of inserting catheters while avoiding liability, and he is instructed about professionalism and how to keep an emotional distance between client and provider
But when Ben is assigned his first client—a tyrannical nineteen-year-old boy named Trevor who is in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy—he soon discovers that the endless service checklists have done nothing to prepare him for the reality of caring for a fiercely stubborn, sexually frustrated teenager who has an ax to grind with the whole world.
Over time, the relationship between Ben and Trev, which had begun with mutual misgivings, evolves into a close friendship, and the traditional boundaries between patient and caregiver begin to blur. The bond between them strengthens while on a road trip to visit Trev’s ailing father—a journey diverted by a series of bizarre must-see roadside attractions that propels them into an impulsive adventure disrupted by one birth, two arrests, a freakish dust storm, and a six-hundred-mile cat-and-mouse pursuit by a mysterious brown Buick Skylark. By the end of that journey, Trev has had his first taste of love, and Ben has found a new reason to love life.
Gomez will play Dot in the movie, who hitches a ride with Benjamin and develops a crush on Trevor. She recently shared the above photo of herself and co-star Craig Roberts, along with the caption, “Meet Trevor and Dot.”
Marinella Hume Casting is handling extras casting for the project, which begins filming on Jan. 22. You can see all of their most recent casting calls on Facebook.
