Written by Tony Aloupis (with revisions by Steve Grabowsky and director Rotimi Rainwater), the indie focuses on a man with cerebral palsy who works at a truck stop while caring for his dying father. There, he befriends "a troubled young prostitute," because in the land of movies, almost any woman, especially one at a truck stop, has to be a prostitute.
The use of the tired cliche aside, I'm eager to see what Rathbone can make of the role -- especially since his first two Twilight forays only allowed him to be jaw-clenched and nervous. And let's hope he's bending the ear of New Moon co-star Michael Sheen, since the actor was simply excellent as Art Honeyman (a man with cerebral palsy) in Music Within.
The film will jump into production this September.
