The Black List recently announced that Oscar-winning actress Mary Steenburgen will star opposite Armie Hammer and Mckenna Grace in the live, staged reading of Tom Flynn’s screenplay GIFTED on Saturday, March 14.
Recent Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (JANE THE VIRGIN) joins the cast as well. Rodriguez will play Hammer’s love interest.
In addition, Michael Beach (SONS OF ANARCHY) and Nick Searcy (JUSTIFIED) have joined the cast, playing opposing legal counsel for Hammer and Steenburgen. Narrator Cooper Thornton (PARKS AND RECREATION) returns for his fourth Black List Live! read.
GIFTED kicks off Black List Live’s 2015 reading series at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood. Tickets are on sale now. Use this link to get tickets for $25.
I've been to two previous readings and both of them have been great fun. The Montalban Theater is a great venue (with convenient parking right next door for $10.)
The synopsis provided by the Black List reads:
Frank Adler (Hammer), a deliberate underachiever, is raising his niece Mary (Grace) in rural Florida. Things get complicated for both of them when he enrolls her in school for the first time and she is immediately labeled as gifted. For reasons that become boldly apparent, all Frank wants is for Mary to have a normal life, but standing in his way is his formidable mother Evelyn (Steenburgen), and the small problem that he doesn't actually have custody of Mary.
