The announcement of Luke Wilson joining the cast of Straight A’s couldn’t have come at a better time, considering they started filming today. Actually, any time earlier would have probably been a better time, but let’s not get bogged down in semantics. The youngest lil’ Wilson will be joining Anna Paquin and Ryan Phillippe, in what I can only assume is a comedy about fantastic-looking people.
Actually, it’s probably less light-hearted than the title will have you believe. The film focuses on Phillippe’s character as he returns from rehab to his hometown in order to confront his brother (Wilson) who married his first love (Paquin). Yikes. That doesn’t sound very fun at all. Can we get an Owen cameo to lighten things up?
Per earlier, the film is shooting now in Shreveport, Louisiana, which is an odd place to set anything.
