Daniele Watts to star in indie comedy

DanieleWattsAccording to Variety, Daniele Watts has been cast alongside Max Burkholder (Parenthood), to star in an upcoming indie comedy written and directed by Morgan Krantz, the guy behind the hilarious web series Neurotica (look for it YouTube). Although the film has yet to be titled, apparently it’s a “coming of age” story that follows the romance between a disgruntled teen (Burkholder) and his babysitter (Watts). Watts and Krantz have been working on the story for the past year and started shooting the film this month.

For those unfamiliar with Watts, she played Coco the Maid in Django Unchained and Angela Mullen on the Showtime series, Weeds. Check out her reel below:
