Ashley Judd and Demian Bichir are set to star in Nicolas Chartier’s coming-of-age comedy, Good Kids.

Filming began Sunday in Massachusetts on the film that also stars Nicholas Braun, Zoey Deutch, Israel Broussard and Mateo Arias.

The Divergent actress will play a beautiful Cape Cod tennis wife alongside Oscar-nominated A Better Life star Bichir, who will play the senior tennis coach at the club where she plays.

The plot follows four "good kids," who live on Cape Cod. Once the wholesome group graduates, they realize they've missed out on the fun less-studious high school kids enjoy. They decide to reinvent themselves and hang out with the wild summer kids, who debark on the island for the summer.

Other cast members joining Judd and Bichir include Terminator: Genisys actor Dayo Okeniyi, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower actress Julia Garner, and Ginny Gardner from Paramount’s upcoming film, Project Almanac.

The film is being directed by Chris McCoy, who wrote the 2011 Black List script, and is being produced by Depth of Field’s Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano, alongside Voltage’s Dominic Rustam. Executive producer is Justin Bursch; WME Global is representing domestic rights for the film; and Voltage Pictures is handling international sales.
