Gillian Jacobs, Melanie Lynskey, Ned Beatty & More Team For Dark Comedy ‘Teddy Bears’

Posted by , on March 27, 2012 at 9:30 am 

The dark comedy Teddy Bears has added quite a bit of acting power, as Variety reports David Krumholtz, Melanie Lynskey, Jason Ritter, Gillian Jacobs, Zachary Knighton, Ahna O’Reilly and Ned Beatty have all joined the cast. Jennifer Westin is producing the indie comedy through her Covert Productions with Karina Miller executive producing.

Written by Thomas Beatty, Teddy Bears “follows three couples who head to the desert to help a friend heal after the death of his mother. They would do anything for him — expect for the one thing he wants.” He will be directing alongside his wife, Rebecca Fishman, which is appropriate considering the film is loosely based on their experiences leading up to their marriage.

This project is not to be confused with the Danish film Teddy Bear, which premiered at Sundance and went on to win the World Cinema Directing Award; or Seth MacFarlane‘s upcoming release Ted, which stars Mark Wahlberg and was once also titled Teddy Bear in the early stages.

Shooting for Teddy Bears begins next week in Joshua Tree, California.
