There's a new indie film on the way with a pretty vague description and a fun cast, but there may be more to it. Variety reports that Adam Salky is directing a new indie film called Dare, written by David Brind. Fresh off of Dragonball, Emmy Rossum is starring, with Alan Cumming, Sandra Bernhard, Ashley Spring, Ana Gasteyer, Rooney Mara, and Cady Huffman also in the cast.

They have described it as a movie "about three privileged high school seniors who decide they can no longer ignore their deepest needs and take the biggest risk of their lives." However, it looks like there's a bit more to it, if this is anything like the short film that Brind wrote and Salky directed, also called Dare. It's about a high school senior named Ben who is crushing on Johnny, a "bad boy" that also goes to his school. "After Ben gives Johnny a ride home one night, the boys end up in Johnny's swimming pool and have an encounter that breaks the rules and blows Ben's mind." How this then translates into three, and becomes the biggest risk of their lives, I don't know. Since Rossum is starring, does this become some sort of love triangle?

The film is currently filming in Philadelphia.
