Variety is exclusively reporting that Josh Peck and Kea Ho are the latest names to join the cast of opioid drama Junction.
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.
The film is written and will be directed by Bryan Greenberg, making his directorial debut. 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.
The new additions will join a cast that includes Bryan Greenberg, Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, Jamie Chung, Michaela Conlin, Hill Harper, Griffin Dunne, Dascha Polanco, Ashley Madekwe, Ryan Eggold, Dash Mihok, Geoff Stults, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Hannah Dunne.
