Daniel Barnz will direct from Patrick Tobin’s script, which was voted to the 2013 Black List
Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy. Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters (“Shame”), Camille Mana (“Smart People”), Manuel Garcia Rulfo (“Bless Me, Ultima) and Oscar-nominated actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste (“Secrets & Lies”) will join Jennifer Aniston in the indie movie “Cake,” TheWrap has learned.
Daniel Barnz (“Won’t Back Down”) will direct from Patrick Tobin’s script, which was voted to the 2013 Black List.
Aniston will play an acerbic woman named Claire who becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina (Kendrick), a woman in her chronic pain support group. As she uncovers the details of Nina’s suicide and develops a poignant relationship with Nina’s husband (Worthington), Claire also grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy.
Messina will play Aniston’s ex-husband who still cares about her deeply, while Huffman will play the facilitator of the support group. Kendrick will appear as a ghost who taunts Claire. Mana will play Claire’s nurse, who has no patience for her demands.
Adriana Barraza and Mamie Gummer co-star in the film, which Mark Canton is producing with Courtney Solomon, Ben Barnz and Kristin Hahn. Aniston will executive produce with Shyam Madiraju.
“Cake” is the first film under a new deal between After Dark Films and Shenghua Entertainment, which produces Chinese television. The new company is called Cinelou Films and it will produce five movies over the next 18 months budgeted at between $7 million and $10 million. WME Global, which co-reps “Cake” along with CAA, will represent Cinelou and assist in the sourcing and packaging of its films. Conquistador Entertainment began selling “Cake” at the European Film Market in Berlin.

Kendrick had three debut at Sundance — “Happy Christmas,” “Life After Beth” and “The Voices.” She’ll soon be seen as Cinderella in Disney’s “Into the Woods.” She’s repped by CAA and attorney Todd Rubenstein.
Messina currently stars on “The Mindy Project” and will soon be seen in David Gordon Green’s “Manglehorn.” He’s repped by WME and attorney Michael Gendler.
Robertson, who next stars in Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” is repped by Innovative Artists.
Macy and Huffman will soon be seen in the former’s directorial debut “Rudderless,” which was recently acquired by Paramount. They’re respectively repped by WME and CAA.
Citizens of Chester’s Mill had better watch their backs. A sentient and seemingly angry dome is throwing objects at them, and they would be wise to get out of the way.
On Monday afternoon, a brigade of shopping carts, trash cans, a toy red wagon and even a hunk of church steeple hurtled around the front yard of Trinity United Methodist Church on East Nash Street.
Crews returned to Southport to work on “Under the Dome” for the first time this year on the first episode of the second season of the CBS science fiction drama, which is set to air June 30.
The scene featured main cast members Britt Robertson (Angie McAlister), Colin Ford (her brother Joe) and Mackenzie Lintz (Norrie Calvert-Hill) and about 25 townspeople extras.
The series’ art department recreated a broken-off portion of the church steeple, and used cable wires and forklifts to slide the portion down towards the trio, who dove out of the way to avoid it.
Extras were also found lying in the parking lot, strewn among the shopping carts and other objects.
The first unit spent Monday morning shooting on a private lake in Wilmington and stunt work at another location. Production opened on March 3, and filming already has taken place in Wilmington and rural Pender County.
Producers have dropped a big spoiler to fans of the show, announcing that two main characters will be killed off during the season premiere, continuing a deadly trend from the first batch of episodes. At least nine characters who had significant speaking roles, were billed as a main character or appeared as a guest star lost their lives in Chester’s Mill during season one.
There are also new details pertaining to casting for this season. After announcing that Eddie Cahill, Karla Crome and Grace Victoria Cox would be joining the production in February, reports from TV Guide have named Sherry Stringfield, who previously starred in “ER,” as signing on to the series to play Pauline. The report stated that the character would be “connected to the origins of the dome” and would “rock Big Jim and Junior’s world.”
Executive producer Stephen King, the best-selling author of the novel upon which the series is based, wrote the first episode, which will be directed by executive producer Jack Bender.
Film crews are tentatively expected to return to Southport next week for more filming, although dates and locations have yet to be formally announced.
The popular show Under the Dome is back in production for their second season and author Stephen King, whose novel is the basis for the CBS series, marked the occasion yesterday on his Twitter account, tweeting:
“The 2nd season of UNDER THE DOME starts production tomorrow. I’m pretty stoked.”
King, who serves as an executive producer on the show, is returning to write the season’s first episode, as he did with the pilot that kicked off the series.
Filming begins in Wilmington, but has locations around the state to bring 13 new episodes to life.
The show may return as early as June and producer Brian K. Vaughan was quoted as saying “No one is safe” Under the Dome.
CSI: NY alum Eddie Cahill and British actress Karla Crome have been cast to join Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Mike Vogel (Bates Motel), Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight saga), Natalie Martinez (CSI: NY), Alexander Koch, Britt Robertson, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz and Aisha Hinds.
Under the Dome was a huge hit in 2013 and a big Amazon deal made the show a big payday for the network – more details HERE
Under the Dome is set to return June 30, 2014.
