Giancarlo Esposito and Whoopi Goldberg will star in the comedy SHRIVER, written and directed by Michael Maren. The duo join the previously announced Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church.

Shriver is based on the novel of the same name by Chris Belden, and the story centers on a loner mistaken for a renowned but reclusive author. He suddenly finds himself at the center of attention at a writer’s conference celebrating the 20th anniversary of the book written by the real author. Shriver takes on the mistaken identity while sparking a romance with the English professor who runs the conference and is about to pull it all off when the real Shriver appears.

Thruline’s Josh Kesselman and Alfred Sapse produce. Production is set to begin later this year.
