Dan Hine (Cuckoo) of the London-based Who’s On First is producing with Elevation Productions’ Christina Piovesan and Noah Segal.
Tim Long wrote the script for The Exchange, inspired by his high school experience. Set in the 1980s, the film follows a socially awkward but highly enterprising teenager who decides to acquire a “mail order best friend”; a sophisticated exchange student from France. Instead, he ends up importing his personal nightmare, a cologne-soaked, chain-smoking, sex-obsessed youth who quickly becomes the hero of his new community.
Filming is currently underway in Canada.
