Carlyn Hudson is directing from a script she co-wrote with fellow University of Texas grad Mallory Culbert, who also co-stars alongside Chilean import Agustin Silva from “Crystal Fairy” and “Magic Magic.”
“The Big Spoon” explores themes of love, commitment and most importantly, female friendship.
Loosely based on Culbert and Hudson’s previous relationship endeavors, the film follows two very different women in two very different relationships as they navigate those unpredictable years between college and actual adulthood.
Knighton will play Culbert’s long-term boyfriend, while McNally will play Culbert’s free-spirited best friend and roommate.
Austin-based producer Melissa Dalley is producing in conjunction with Tangerine Entertainment. Production began earlier this month in Austin, where Hudson and Culbert call home.
