Taylour Paige is set to star in the upcoming dark comedy The Trainer, opposite Vito Schnabel, Julia Fox, and Steven Van Zandt.
American History X’s Tony Kaye is directing from a script by Schnabel and Jeff Solomon. The project has been in development for more than a decade and is based on an original story by Schnabel.
The Trainer unfolds over eight days of sleep-deprived chaos in LA. It follows Jack (Schnabel), a down-on-his-luck fitness expert living with his mother in Los Angeles, who takes a maniacal swing at fame and fortune, trying to realize his version of the American dream.
Schnabel, Kaye and Jeremy Steckler (Old Man and the Gun, Only the Brave) are producing, with George Paaswell serving as exec producer. Production will kick off in Los Angeles early next month.
