Joel P. West is scoring the upcoming comedy drama The Bachelors. The film is written and directed by Kurt Voelker and stars J.K. Simmons, Julie Delpy, Josh Wiggins and Odeya Rush. The movie revolves around a widower and his 17-year-old son who move from a small northern California town to Los Angeles, where their lives are transformed by a wry old friend and two extraordinary women. Matthew Baer (Unbroken, City by the Sea, Maggie) and George Parra (The Squeeze) are producing the project with Joe McKelheer (The Adderall Diaries) and Bill Kiely for Windowseat Entertainment. The Bachelors is expected to premiere in 2017.
As previously reported, West (Grandma, Short Term 12) also has Destin Daniel Cretton’s The Glass Castle starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts coming up.
