March 20, 2024

Ray Nicholson, Jacob Batalon, Betty Gabriel, and Matt Walsh have officially joined the ensemble of Paramount's forthcoming action-packed feature, "Novocaine," as exclusively revealed by TheWrap.

These newly announced additions will complement the already unveiled cast featuring Jack Quaid and Amber Midthunder. The film is slated for release on March 14, 2025.

Taking the helm as directors for this project are Robert Olsen and Dan Berk, known for their work on "Significant Other," while Lars Jacobson takes charge of the screenplay.

"Novocaine" promises to deliver a gripping narrative, revolving around a sheltered bank executive portrayed by Quaid, afflicted with a rare genetic anomaly rendering him incapable of experiencing pain. When his bank falls victim to a heist and one of his colleagues, played by Midthunder, is abducted, he must confront his limitations and transform them into assets.

Behind the scenes, Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell will produce under the banner of Safehouse Pictures, alongside Drew Simon representing Infrared Pictures. Executive producing duties will be handled by Sam Speiser (Infrared Pictures), Matt Schwartz (Safehouse), Lars Jacobson, Paul Barbeau, Josh Adler, and Julian Rosenberg (Circle of Confusion).
