Patricia Clarkson and Zachary Booth Join Indie Dark Comedy Last Weekend
Patricia Clarkson and Zachary Booth are the latest actors to join the cast of the upcoming indie dark comedy Last Weekend, from directors Tom Dolby and Tom Williams, who will be making their feature directorial debuts. Production on the movie is set to commence this week.
THR says the rest of the cast includes Joseph Cross, Devon Gray, Jayma Mays, Chris Mulkey, Alexia Rasmussen and Rutina Wesley. The events in the film are set over a long weekend when a couple, their two sons and their friends and partners travel up to Lake Tahoe to stay at the central couple's estate. Apparently things start going a little nuts and according to the trade, "leisure gives way to chaos as a series of events disturbs the wife's carefully planned festivities, and the future of the family and the house becomes uncertain." Cross and Booth will play the two sons while Clarkson and Mulkey play their parents.
The report about the film also includes an interesting tidbit about where the movie is shooting, as the same Lake Tahoe home was featured in 1951's A Place In The Sun, starring Elizabeth Taylor.
Clarkson was most recently featured alongside Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in the romantic comedy Friends With Benefits and recently appeared on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation. She will next be seen in Zal Batmanglij's The East, which co-stars Alexander Sarsgard, Ellen Page, Brit Marling and Julia Ormond.
Booth is best known for his role as Michael Hewes on the television series Damages and in 2013 he will appear in indie films including Brett Allen Smith's Never and Neil Drumming's Big Words.
