Tony Aloupis' Feature Debut 'Truck Stop' Picks Up Juno Temple & Evan Peters For Period Drama

Rising actress Juno Temple has made quite a name for herself recently, playing layered, twisted roles in both William Friedkin's “Killer Joe” and Gregg Araki's much-underrated “Kaboom,” and it looks like she will continue the trend as she joins Tony Aloupis' feature directorial debut, “Truck Stop,” alongside Evan Peters of “American Horror Story” fame.

Rising actress Juno Temple has made quite a name for herself recently, playing layered, twisted roles in both William Friedkin's “Killer Joe” and Gregg Araki's much-underrated “Kaboom,” and it looks like she will continue the trend as she joins Tony Aloupis' feature directorial debut, “Truck Stop,” alongside Evan Peters of “American Horror Story” fame.

Deadline report that the film, which is set in the 1970s, follows the coming-of-age relationship between a high-schooler with cerebral palsy, played by Peters, and a disturbed runaway battling demons of her own (Temple). Aloupis, who last wrote the indie film “Sugar,” (not the Boden/Flick baseball drama, but an upcoming ensemble film about homeless teens) has an interesting premise on his hands, and definitely has the cast to pull it off. Peters was solid in the first season of the uneven-but-compelling “American Horror Story,” and Temple will be invading the public spotlight with her appearances in “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Lovelace” later this year.

Aloupis has his work cut out for him, with both the unconventional relationship and period setting throwing interesting obstacles into the mix, but as “Truck Stop” continues production in Los Angeles for the next few months, it's clear his cast has the potential to pull it off.
