According to Variety, Whoopi Goldberg and Giancarlo Esposito are set to join Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church in “Shriver,” a comedy of mistaken identity being introduced to buyers at Cannes by Content Media. The film, directed by Michael Maren, turns on a loner (Church) who is mistaken for a famous author at a literary conference and who falls for the conference organizer (Collette). The man nearly pulls off the deception before the real author shows up and causes havoc. The screenplay, by Maren, is adapted from the novel “Shriver” by Chris Belden. “From the very beginning we just loved the clever premise,” Jamie Carmichael, Content’s president of film said. Josh Kesselman and Alfred Sapse of Thruline are producing.
