The upcoming project has a screenplay co-written by Doremus and Ben York Jones, who previously collaborated on "Like Crazy," which starred Jones and won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
The film, directed by Doremus, will center on a high school teacher (Pearce), who is tempted to cheat on his wife (Ryan) with one of his students (Jones).
Ryan was nominated for a Tony Award in 2000 for her performance in Uncle Vanya and again in 2005 for A Streetcar Named Desire. She has also been seen on Broadway in The Women, The Three Sisters and The Sisters Rosenweig.
Jones is currently starring in Luise Miller at the West End's Donmar Warehouse and has been seen on Broadway in Metamorphoses.
