August 11, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Hollywood star Adrien Brody has been signed to play a high school teacher in director Tony Kaye’s upcoming movie Detachment.

The Pianist star will play the substitute teacher Henry Barthes, whose depiction about the lives of high school students, teachers and administration, is the soul of the movie. Brody is also executive producer of the movie.

Other actors of the movie include the names like Marcia Gay Harden, Blythe Danner, Christina Hendricks and James Caan. The production work of the movie started on 25th July in New York.

As a substitute teacher Henry, Brody keeps roaming from school to school. He never stays in one school for a long time to form any kind of attachment. He keeps on imparting various pieces of knowledge to his students in different schools.

Paper Street Films producer Austin Stark says, “Director Tony Kaye has a unique power of visualizing the American public school system. We are very excited to work with this talented group of cast, who will bring this important story to the big screen.”

Brody is the youngest actor ever to win the Oscar Award for Best Actor for the lead role in a movie at the age of 29 years.
