Kat Dennings has signed on to play Renee Yohe, a central Florida girl who inspired “To Write Love on Her Arms.”
The story follows 19-year-old Renee who has always loved fairy tales: the idea of a princess, a hero and a happily ever after. But Renee’s life is that of a darker tale: she’s a young woman battling addiction, depression and self-injury. In a creative blend of artistic fantasy balanced with harsh reality, the movie follows Renee on her courageous journey towards recovery.
Music and musicians have been a big part of TWLOHA (the T-shirts are a youth music phenomenon) and Travie McCoy and singer/songwriter Rachael Yamagata, among others, will perform on camera in this film, which producers describe as a blend of gritty reality and fantasy.
The combination of subject matter and on camera talent, a popular charity/cause that is a big deal in youth culture and the music community make “The Renee Project” (better title needed) the most promising Major Motion Picture to be shot here since the Oscar winning “Monster.”
Production will wrap March 29.
