Anton Yelchin and Megalyn Echikunwoke will star in Vincent & Roxxy, a crime thriller being produced by Keith Kjarval and his Unified Pictures.
Gary Michael Schultz wrote the script and is directing the indie, which tells of a young woman, Roxxy (Echikunwoke), on a run in Chicago who is saved by Vincent, a young man also on the run. The two then fall in love while going on a crime spree. A July start in Austin is being eyed.
Echikunwoke has appeared on shows such as 90210 and House of Lies and will be seen in the indie Electric Slide. She is repped by UTA, A Management and Stone Meyer. Yelchin recently wrapped shooting Dying of the Light, an indie thriller from Paul Schrader that sees the young actor star opposite Nicolas Cage. He also just signed on to star opposite Zooey Deschanel in The Driftless Area, which will shoot in May in Vancouver. Unified is also producing the latter. He is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Sloane Offer.
