For a while now, Lymelife director Derick Martini has been developing an untitled drama that once went under the name I Am My Family Secret. Well, now the name seems to be back in place (at least for the moment) and Martini has also found the first two pieces of casting for the film, with Emma Roberts and Craig Roberts signing on.
Secret focuses on two brothers who are very different. They realise it might have something to do with a shocking, life-altering mystery that their parents have been hiding from them for more than 20 years. There are no other plot details beyond that, though we wonder if this means that one of the siblings is an alien! Ooh… or that their parents are really figments of their imagination? Time to stop guessing, we fear.
And in case anyone was wondering, no, the two stars are not directly related. Emma, who also appeared in Lymelife, is part of the acting legacy headed by Julia and Eric. Craig, on the other hand, was the young star of Richard Ayoade’s excellent Submarine. Emma will next be seen in Celeste And Jesse Forever, which is drawing some praise at the Sundance Film Festival. And Craig also has a film at the fest, since he’s part of the cast of Red Lights. Martin, meanwhile, most recently shot Chloe Moretz/Blake Lively drama Hick.
