Tony Award nominee Ed Harris (Precious Sons), Tony winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole), Amber Heard, Christian Slater (The Glass Menagerie) and James Franco (Of Mice and Men) have been cast in the film adaptation of Stephen Elliott's "The Adderall Diaries," according to Showbiz411.com.
Pamela Romanowsky will direct the adaptation, which she penned with Franco, for the Of Mice and Men star's production company, Rabbit Bandini Productions.
"The Adderall Diaries" follows a notorious San Francisco murder trial about a computer programmer who kills his Russian wife, whom he met through an online dating service.
The film is set to begin production May 6 in New York.
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.
