Richard Dreyfuss Finds Cas & Dylan

Richard Dreyfuss Finds Cas & Dylan

Actor Jason Priestley might not be scoring that many big roles in this stage of his career, but he’s been quietly been putting the pieces in place to switch to directing. Now, for his first fictional big screen outing (he’s already made music documentary Barenaked In America), Priestley has snagged a big name, scoring Richard Dreyfuss for the lead in Cas & Dylan.

Dreyfuss will be the Cas of the title, a Dr. Cas Pepper, who is terminally ill but determined to go out on nobody’s terms but his own. But his plan goes askew when he winds up on the lam with a young woman (we’ll assume she’s the Dylan), played by Tatiana Maslany.

Priestley’s working from a script by Jessie Gabe and has rustled up the funds to shoot the movie. Dreyfuss, meanwhile, was last seen in Red and will next appear in Western The Big Valley and coming of age drama Very Good Girls, which also stars Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen.
