Jurassic World star Nick Robinson has signed on to star in William H. Macy’s upcoming indie Krystal.

Macy will both star in and direct the dramedy, which follows Robinson as a straight-laced young man who falls head over heels for a former stripper and alcoholic and pretends to join Alcoholics Anonymous to get close to her. Felicity Huffman, T.I., Grant Gustin, Kathy Bates, and John Leguizamo also star.

Will Aldis penned the script, and producers Rachel Winter (Dallas Buyers Club) and Dan Keston first started working on Krystal in 2002. Macy signed on a few years back.

In addition to directing an episode of Shameless, Macy made his feature directorial debut in 2014 with the musical drama Rudderless, and he most recently directed the road trip sex comedy The Layover, starring Alexandra Daddario and Kate Upton.
