Word is that Joel not only wrote the film but will also take a supporting role. Here’s what Joel he had to say about his new project to ScreenDaily at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival “Weirdo is about a guy who is forced to face the past when it comes back in the form of an old school friend. But he continually lies about it (the past) and it haunts him in a bad bad way.” It’s a smaller film, which is why Edgerton decided to make it his first film, “Weirdo is a very contained film: five or six locations and six characters. We have people interested in financing subject to casting and we’re playing that game now. I’ll play a supporting role and I will bring the post home.”
We will keep you posted on all things weird!
