The Hollywood Reporter posts that Dean Cain and Jay Thomas are in final negotiations to star with Teri Polo (who has already signed on) in a new ensemble film called Material Lies from writer/director Katherine Starr. Cain is set to play a struggling actor named Josh who learns that he has leukemia. Upon hearing this news, he decides to set up a reunion weekend for him and his college friends, which includes his former girlfriend Ginni (Polo), who he hopes to reconnect with.
But here's the kicker: "He plans to portray himself as wealthy and successful, and Frank (Thomas) agrees to help him." Well, I guess if you're going to concoct a scam to get the girl, it's good to have the leukemia back-up when the plan ultimately backfires in your face. How mad can someone get when they hear the big secret? Production on the film will begin this June in Malibu.
