Mark Webber, who played Stephen Stills in Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, is getting behind the lens for his next project: an untitled indie drama starring Scott Pilgrim co-star Michael Cera, Jennifer’s Body actress Amanda Seyfried and his own two-year-old son.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Webber about the project, which is currently in production in Los Angeles. The actor, writer and filmmaker revealed that the untitled drama will closely mirror his own life, focusing on a struggling single father’s relationship with his two-year-old son in the wake of the child’s mother’s death: “That’s the crux of the film … After spending so much time with my son being a father, I became obsessed with the idea of showing the most authentic father-son dynamic on screen.”
Webber added that Cera, Seyfried and other actors including Shannyn Sossamon and Jason Ritter would be playing heightened versions of themselves in the film: “I’m getting them to show a real side of who they are and smash that up with people’s expectations of celebrity.”
