Emma Roberts and Freddy Highmore join Alicia Silverstone in Homework
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Can we still consider Freddy Highmore and Emma Roberts “budding” stars? I’m curious because that’s the term I want to use, but both of them have seemingly been around for quite a while. But the two of them are set to star in the teen romance film HOMEWORK with Alicia Silverstone, Michael Angarano, Elizabeth Reaser, Rita Wilson and Blair Underwood. The film was written by Gavin Wiesen, who will also be directing.
The film is about a high-school student (Highmore) that befriends the girl of his dreams (Roberts). As far as I can tell, the only association to “homework” is that the lead doesn’t like to do it. I’m really hoping there’s more to it than that, but that’s all we get right now. It’s been a while since we’ve had a decent teen romance film, so let’s hope Gavin Wiesen gets this right.
