Macaulay Culkin, former child star of the “Home Alone” movies, is making his first film in 10 years, the upcoming independent drama-comedy “Changeland.”
The film is the directorial debut for Robot Chicken co-creator and “Buffy the vampire Slayer” actor Seth Green.
The announcement of Culkin’s casting was on Green’s website last week when the plot also was revealed.
“In addition to writing and directing, Seth will star in the film as a hesitant character undergoing a personal crisis as he meets up in Thailand with his self-assured best friend, played by Breckin Meyer,” said the website. Also starring are Brenda Song, Clare Grant, Rose Williams, Kedar Williams-Stirling and WWE Superstar Randy Orton.”
Culkin has been lurking on the fringes of the entertainment world and has been involved in numerous small scale projects, but his appearance in “Changeland” will mark his first big movie debut in a decade.
His last big role in a film was in 2007’s “Sex and Breakfast,” noted Hello Giggles.
Prior to that, he appeared in the 2004 comedy, “Saved,” in which he played the wheelchair bound brother to Mandy Moore’s character.
While no further information has been shared regarding the role Culkin will play in “Changeland,” production for the film began earlier this week in Thailand.
Green has been actively documenting the experience on social media.
Posting an image of himself and Meyer on scene at Thailand on Twitter, he captioned it:
“That time @breckinmeyer & I shot a movie about life, love & friendship in beautiful Thailand. @ChangelandMovie”
Speaking to media, Green was quoted as saying:
“It feels like a dream to be filming in Thailand with an incredible crew and some of my closest friends. We are one of the first films to take advantage of Thailand’s new incentive measures from the Thailand Film Office and the Department of Tourism. I am very excited to share this story.”
