Currently, no other information on the cast of the film is known. Garner and Abbott have some chemistry together, having both starred in 2011’s Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene.

Garner is best known for her star-raising performance as Ruth Langmore in the hit Netflix drama Ozark, for which she won three Emmy awards.
