Production Description

Casting "Fat Money Summer," an adaptation of a short story written by Owen Wilson ("Wedding Crashers," "Midnight in Paris") about two teenage brothers who start a lawn mowing business over the summer. On the job, they meet Mr. Shay, a man of obvious wealth who wants to hire the boys to work on his yard. The boys realize they have hit the jackpot: Shay lets them use his pool after they work, orders whatever food they want, and has his maid wait on them. The teens even start stealing hundred dollar bills from Mr. Shay's overflowing wallet; he never seems to notice. However, things come to a head when Shay catches them in the act one day, and his true intentions come to light.
