Stop the world! Deadline is reporting that Rob Lowe has joined the cast of Mark Pellington's (ARLINGTON ROAD, THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES) low budget, male-centric thriller I MELT WITH YOU. Lowe will play "a doctor struggling with deep personal loss and a growing drug addiction." We recently brought you news of Piven and Jane joining the cast of the ensemble film that centers around the “interconnecting lives of four men." However, not much of anything is known about their characters specifically.

The script for the film is based on an original story by Pellington and screenwriter Glenn Porter. Read what the director had to say about the themes I MELT WITH YOU after the break!

“I am 48 and found a dearth of of films that speak to my life experience,” Pellington said. “Where is my generation’s version of Cassavetes’ Husbands? It is hard to get anything idiosyncratic made for a budget. I have been shooting music videos on small cameras at low cost and wanted to apply it to a film. This is about four guys and deals with mortality, aging and friendship. It is very dark and very low budget. I have nothing against the larger budget movies I have made. I just want to make movies and doing it this way improves my chances.”
