Actors Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges will be teaming up for a new family drama “Ben is Back”.
The “Manchester By The Sea” actor will play the charming-but-troubled Ben Burns, who returns home to his unsuspecting family one fateful Christmas Eve, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
While Roberts will play a wary mother Holly Burns to Hedges’ character, who welcomes her son but soon learns that he is still very much in harm’s way.
Hedges’ real-life father, Peter Hedges will direct and co-produce the movie, along with Color Force and Black Bear Pictures.
The production will begin in New York in December.
