NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Actor Jamie Kennedy will produce and Nick Stahl will star in the indie drama "In Northwood."

The film is a redemption tale centering on a man condemned to a mental hospital for committing murder. Kennedy described the project as taking place "at a moment when you're at a crossroads and have to choose what decisions you would make to survive."

First-time director D.W. Brown, a prolific playwright who was Kennedy's acting teacher, will direct from his own script.

Olivia Wilde, Dash Mihok and Shohreh Aghdashloo will co-star.

Kennedy co-wrote and starred in the hip-hop comedy "Malibu's Most Wanted," which earned $34 million for Warner Bros. in 2003. The actor also created the Fran Drescher sitcom "Living With Fran" and created and starred in the WB Network prank show "The Jamie Kennedy Experiment."

Stahl is best known for his role in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" and played the lead role in the recent indie thriller "Quid Pro Quo."
