The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, Jamie Chung, Michaela Conlin and Hill Harper are set to star in the opioid drama Junction, which will mark Bryan Greenberg’s directorial debut, which he also wrote and will star in.
Junction will address the opioid crisis in America from three different points of view: the CEO of a pharmaceutical company, a doctor and a patient. Each character comes face to face with their decisions and their role in the epidemic.
Bryan Greenberg released a statement saying:
This is a very personal story to me, as I’m sure it will be for millions of people who have found themselves affected by this crisis. I’m honoured to be working alongside the Verdi team, Aaron Kaufman, Anthony Gudas, and The Sandgaard Foundation to bring my vision to life.
The film is being produced by Public School Productions and Verdi Productions, with Chad A. Verdi producing alongside Aaron Kaufman, Anthony Gudas, Michelle Verdi, Chad Verdi Jr., Paul Luba, Scott Annan and Thomas Sandgaard. Production is scheduled to commence sometime this spring in Rhode Island.
