Jeremy Irons And Jack Huston Join 'An Actor Prepares', Lucas Till Leads 'Spectrum' Cast

Jeremy Irons and Jack Huston are teaming up for father/son roadtrip comedy, An Actor Prepares. Directed by Steve Clark from a script he co-wrote with Thomas Moffet, the story centers on "Atticus Smith (Irons) who is a highly celebrated actor whose spectacular career is matched only by his rugged good looks and devilish charm. His estranged son (Huston), a devoted husband and professor, couldn’t be more different from his father. But when a medical condition forces Atticus to hitch a ride from Los Angeles to New York to be at his daughter’s wedding, his son becomes his only option and the duo ensue on a madcap road adventure together." Irons can be seen right now in Ben Wheatley's High-Rise, while Huston has the Ben-Hur remake coming up. [Variety]
