Woody Harrelson and Owen Wilson have scored the lead roles in the loosely based on a true story coming-of-age thriller “Lips Like Sugar”.

Set against the backdrop of the punk and skate worlds of West Los Angeles during the 1984 Olympic Games, the story follows the friendship of two teenage girls from different walks of life.

As city officials focus on the Olympics, the lives of two former detectives (Harrelson and Wilson) become intertwined when one of the girls goes missing. Additional casting is underway on the project.

Harrelson produces the film along with Russ Posternak, Kevin Chinoy, Francesca Silvestri, Jeremy Plager, Greg Lauritano, Kyle Schember, Zac Adams, Anthony Tambakis and Brantley Gutierrez.

Grammy winner Brantley Gutierrez directs from a script by Anthony Tambakis (“Warrior”). Will Butler (“Her”) is set to compose the score, with production to begin later this year.

Harrelson is coming off “Champions” and HBO’s “The White House Plumbers,” whilst Wilson most recently did “Paint” along with the upcoming second season of Marvel’s “Loki” and Disney’s “Haunted Mansion” film. Wilson is also tipped to be filming scenes for Marvel Studios’ “Deadpool 3” currently in production in the UK.
