Casting News for Coming-of-Age Comedy/Drama 'Greg's Going to Rehab'

EntSun News/11027869
Production to Begin in St. Louis, Led by Writer/Director Chris Lawing

ST. LOUIS - EntSun -- Mercury Films, a digital cinema production company, today announced its top cast for Greg's Going to Rehab, a coming-of-age comedy/drama featuring Cameron Mann (Mare of Easttown, Eddington), Saylor Bell Curda (High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Walker) and Jack Falahee (How to Get Away with Murder, Mercy Street), with Dot-Marie Jones (Bros, Glee) and Jim Beaver (Deadwood, Supernatural).

In the film, Greg Walker is a sixteen-year-old metalhead on a mission to see the concert of a lifetime - Ozzy/Metallica. But his failing grades, disappointed parents, excessive partying, and an angry senior could derail that plan. The solution? A quick stint in rehab so he can dodge the senior, get his parents off his back and get out in time for the show.

"Nothing I've written before is based in a world I know better than struggles of drug addiction, teenage ennui, 80's culture and subsequent recovery. As a recovering alcoholic with 36 years of sobriety, I have an intense understanding of the world and journey of Greg," said writer/director Chris Lawing.
