Michael Shannon, Don Johnson and Kate Hudson to star in comedy Shriver

The Iceman

Story by Jack Foley

MICHAEL Shannon, Don Johnson, Kate Hudson and Da’Vine Joy Randolph are to star in new comedy Shriver.

The feature comes from writer-director Michael Maren and is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Chris Belden.

The story is set in a small liberal arts college, which is desperate to make a splash in the literary world, which begins to think that they have found a famous writer who has been in hiding for 20 years, Shriver, and invites him to their writer’s conference.

Unfortunately, the person they have located is a different Shriver, a down-on-his-luck handyman who has never read a book in his life and has trouble telling the difference between his imagination and reality.

With nothing to lose, this Shriver accepts the invitation to attend the college’s literary festival, but things come crashing down when the ‘real’ writer shows up to expose him.

The film, which has already begun principal photography, is set to resume shooting after the production shutdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Jimmi Simpson, Zach Braff, Mark Boone, Jr. and Aja Naomi King round out the cast.
