'Lucky One' Star to Topline Indie Drama 'Stay' (Exclusive)

Taylor Schilling, who starred with Zac Efron in The Lucky One, is toplining with Aidan Quinn in the indie drama Stay.

Wiebke von Carolsfield, who directed the 2002 movie Marion Bridge, is in the helmer’s seat for what is a Canadian-Irish co-production. Samson Films and Submission are producing.

The story centers on a woman (Schilling) who gets pregnant. After she learns the man (Quinn) has no interest in keeping the baby, she returns home to her father in Canada to figure out her next move.

Schlling has been on a bit of tear since nabbing the lead opposite Efron in Lucky One, which was a solid performer earlier this year. She booked a key role in Ben Affleck’s Argo, which opens in October and is generating strong early awards buzz.

She is repped by Gersh and 3 Arts Entertainment.
