New skating drama coming soon

Filming will begin this month in Shreveport, Louisiana on the coming-of-age drama Skateland. The cast includes a bunch of fresh and veteran faces, including Ashley Greene (King Of California), Haley Ramm (Into The Wild), James LeGros (Vantage Point),┬áTaylor Handley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning), and probably Shiloh Fernandez (CBS’ Jericho).

Shiloh Fernandez is in final negotiations to play Ritchie Wheeler, a teen forced out of a job when his small-town roller rink shuts down. He faces tough decisions about his future, his parents’ divorce and complicated relationships with friends Brent (co-screenwriter Heath Freeman) and Kenny (Taylor Handley), his sister Mary (Ramm) and Brent’s sister Michelle (Greene). LeGros plays Brent and Michelle’s father.

Set in the eighties, the independent film’s creative team is composed of several newcomers including director Anthony Burns and screenwriting brothers Brandon, Heath and Burns Freeman.
