It looks like it’s been confirmed by Variety that Amy (or Scoot McNairy) is no longer a part of The Last Time I Made Straight A’s, which is indeed the same project as previously mentioned back in July 2009 — the script has been written by Dave Cole. An extract from the article is posted below.
Indie producer Nu Image/Millenium Films is lining up “Straight A’s,” to star Anna Paquin and Ryan Phillippe.
Nu Image developed the comedy under the radar, with production starting today at Nu Image’s studios in Shreveport, La. James Cox is directing from Dave Cole’s script.
Holly Wiersma and Rene Besson are producing, with Avi Lerner, Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Lati Grobman exec producing.
Phillippe portrays a man who’s been in and out of rehab for 10 years and is haunted by the ghost of his dead mother pressing him to return home to the family he turned his back on years ago. Outfitted with nothing more than a bag of pills and a sack of weed, he trots back to Shreveport, only to be faced with his brother’s wife, who’s still pining for him, her first love.
Riley Thomas Stewart (“The Beaver”) will play Phillippe’s character’s son.
