Duo seeing ‘Unicorns’ for indie drama
By Jay A. Fernandez

Johanna E. Braddy and Kyle Gallner have been cast as the stars of “Unicorns,” an indie drama from writer-director Leah Meyerhoff. The film is being produced by “Frozen River” producer Heather Rae and executive produced by Allison Anders.

“Unicorns” centers on an awkward teenage girl who escapes to a fantasy world when her first romantic relationship turns increasingly abusive. The film is scheduled to enter production in the summer.

Braddy, repped by UTA and Tower 10 Entertainment, has had recurring roles on the shows “The Riches,” “Southland” and the ABC Family series “Greek.” Gallner, repped by Gersh and Management 360, was recently cast in the remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Rae also has “American Tragic,” starring America Ferrera and Melissa Leo, in development at Maya Entertainment.

First-time feature director Meyerhoff created the Student Academy Award-nominated short film “Twitch” and is pursuing a master of fine arts degree at NYU.
