Jeremy Kushnier and Paul Nolan to Play Estranged Brothers in "Will," Film From Serge Kushnier
18 Jan 2013
Jeremy Kushnier and Paul Nolan, who starred in last season's Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar, will play brothers in "Will," a short film from Kushnier's brother, Serge Kushnier.
Serge Kushnier, who was seen on Broadway in Hairspray, developed the 15-minute short film, which recently made it to the quarterfinals of a Sundance-based screenwriting competition.
In the film, according to press notes, "two estranged brothers have to bury their loathsome father when they discover only one of them is entitled to the inheritance." Shooting will take place Feb. 25-27 in Stratford, ON.
Serge and Jeremy Kushnier's brother, musician Bryce Kushnier, provides music for "Will."
Jeremy Kushnier, who currently plays Tommy DeVito in Broadway's Jersey Boys, has also been seen in Rent and Footloose.
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.
