According to Variety, Susan Sarandon and Scream 4 stars David Arquette and Adam Brody have joined the upcoming film Hemlock Drive, the feature directorial debut of documentary filmmaker/actress Rosanna Arquette. The script comes from writers Jennifer Carta and Mandy Steckelberg and follows a "dying mother who enlists her three grown children to throw her a living funeral in a desperate attempt to unite her family."
Hemlock Drive is expected to start shooting this September in Louisiana, right after David Arquette directs the 3D psychological thriller Glutton this summer (which, by the way, we can only assume is a montage of really fat people stuffing themselves to '80s rock anthems in eye-popping 3D!). It will be produced by Kristin Holt and executive produced by Tracey Adam and Sascha Hecks, and if David brings any of that acting he's known for -- you know, the terrible kind -- we imagine he'll receive numerous noogies from his sister Rosanna as they shoot the film until he gets it right.
The TV star and his wife Mandy Steckelberg welcomed daughter Abbey Ray into the world on Wednesday (15Sep10).
The Big Love star and his wife picked the name because they're both huge Beatles fans and love the Fab Four's Abbey Road album.
Fabian is awestruck after witnessing his partner go through the wonders of labour. He tells People.com, "Being a father for the first time is fantastic. My love and admiration for what women can do has gone up 1,000 per cent."
And the couple already has a name picked out for the tot - inspired by their shared love for The Beatles.
Fabian tells E! News, "We are going to name her Abbey Ray after Abbey Road in London. We were over in London and I'm a Beatles freak so we went to visit Abbey Road. I looked over at my wife and she was so moved by the place she was in tears. We didn't even know she was pregnant at the time but I filed the name Abbey in case we ever had a girl.
"A few weeks later my wife's friend called saying she had a dream (that) Mandy was pregnant with a girl, and it was true."
