Western New York has its fair share of notable productions (and of course, the birthplace of the very website you’re on now), but it’s not exactly Hollywood. So when a film comes along that shot there, we tend to pay a little more attention to it. With that, we’ve got first look at a new drama which completed production in Syracuse earlier this year titled Adult World. Directed by Scott Coffey from a script written by Andy Cochran (one of the writers of MTV’s Teen Wolf ), the film stars Emma Roberts, John Cusack and Evan Peters (Kick-Ass).
The drama tells the story of Amy, a college graduate who moves back in with her parents to pursue her dream of being the next poetry star. But since that doesn’t end up paying the bills, her parents force her into getting a job and she ends up at Adult World, an erotic bookstore. Shannon Woodward, Cloris Leachman and John Cullum also star in the film featuring a soundtrack from Wolf Parade and Handsome Fur‘s Dan Boeckner and one can see the first stills above and below thanks to The Playlist.
Expect the film to land on the 2013 festival circuit, likely Sundance.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
