Eric Stoltz will direct the screenplay by Ben August. Chenoweth will play the role of Janet.

The cast also includes Olivia Holt as Veronica, Skyler Gisondo as Bernard, Bruce Dern as Oswald and Kathleen Chalfant as the editor in chief with Nick Krause and Peter Maloney in smaller roles.

The film, according to the online industry source, "follows teenagers Bernard, who lives with his quirky grandfather Oswald, and Veronica, a type-A personality with Ivy League aspirations who aims to step out from under her TV Producer-mother’s shadow. When Veronica approaches Bernard to run for the Board of Education, he sees it as a chance to reform the local school system to enable him to better care for his grandfather. Veronica meanwhile schemes to eliminate the class-ranking system to better her chances of getting into Yale. While wooing the local paper’s Editor in Chief for an endorsement, Bernard sees her as a potential partner for his grandfather. As Bernard and Veronica’s campaign progresses, the two discover the meaning of love and the importance of helping others."

Production began earlier this week in Louisiana. A release date has yet to be announced.
