Pic is based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David (Carell) and Nic Sheff (Chalamet), which chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with meth addiction over many years. The film also stars Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan and Timothy Hutton.
Groeningen and Luke Davies (Lion) wrote the screenplay, and Plan B Entertainment’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner produce.
Beautiful Boy will receive a platform release. The pic sounds like another Amazon title destined for awards. Carell was nominated for a best actor Oscar for 2015’s Foxcatcher, while Chalamet received his first Oscar nom for best actor this season for Sony Pictures Classics’ Call Me by Your Name.
