Nathan Lane, Julianne Moore and Greg Kinnear join English Teacher

Nathan Lane, Julianne Moore and Greg Kinnear are all set to appear in comedy drama The English Teacher .

The story follows a high school English teacher (played by Moore, we're guessing) who shows her passion in the classroom but lives a repressed personal life outside of it.

When a former student returns from New York having failed to make it as a playwright, she convinces him to mount his production at the high school.

Lane plays the drama teacher at the same school. And while we hate to suggest that scripts usually take the well-travelled road, we're betting his character's not happy at someone else stealing his dramatic thunder.

Director Craig Zisk makes his feature debut, following work on TV shows such as Nurse Jackie , Weeds and The Big C .
