Juno Temple has signed on to star opposite Evan Peters (American Horror Story, Kick-Ass) in the 1970′s-set coming-of-age drama Truck Stop. Writer turned writer-director Tony Aloupis (Sugar) will make his directorial debut on the feature that centers on the friendship that evolves between a high schooler suffering from cerebral Palsy (Peters) and an edgy runaway with a troubled past (Temple). Soon to shoot in Los Angeles, the drama will give each of the young actors the opportunity to show what they can do outside of the supporting arena.
Peters is currently shooting Adult World, where he has a supporting part opposite another dazzling ingénue, Emma Roberts. While casting reports have revealed his character's name—Manny—no efforts been made to explain how he figures into the plot of an aspiring poetess who believes she's destined for greatness, but is currently working a survival job at an adult book store.
