Adrien Brody attaches himself to Kaye’s “Detachment”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Adrien Brody has accepted the lead in Tony Kaye’s “Detachment,” Which chronicles three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students through the eyes of a substitute teacher.

Brody isn’t the only Oscar winner in Kaye’s “class.” He’ll join Marcia Gay Harden in a faculty populated by Christina Hendricks, William Peterson, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner and James Caan.

Brody will play Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher who roams from school to school, imparting modes of knowledge but never staying long enough to form any semblance of sentient attachment.

Production began on July 25, in New York.

Paper Street Films producer Austin Stark adds, “Director Tony Kaye’s vision of the American public school system is poignant and unique, and we are thrilled to be working with such a talented cast in bringing this important story to the screen.”
