Directed by Sam Friedlander, "Larry Gaye" features a screenplay by Mike Sikowitz; Ted Kroeber and Michael Roiff are producing.
The comedy, according to press notes, is about an "airline that tries to save money by eliminating flight attendants." Feuerstein plays the title character, "a rebellious flight attendant who learns he has a son and turns the loss of his job into the chance to be a good father." Fitzgerald is cast as a go-getter publishing company executive who wants to publish a book about Gaye.
Fitzgerald was Tony-nominated for his performances in Young Frankenstein and Finian's Rainbow and was featured opposite Al Pacino in The Merchant of Venice.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
