Vanessa Hudgens (Sucker Punch) and Brendan Fraser (The Mummy) are in advanced talks to star in indie drama Gimme Shelter.

Gimme Shelter centers on a pregnant, homeless teen (Hudgens) who flees her abusive mother and seeks out her biological father (Fraser). He first takes her in but then throws her out when she refuses to abort her child.

Ron Krauss (Rave) is writing and directing the film, which is expected to start production next month in Connecticut.

Krauss, Jeff Rice (The Watcher) and Dama Claire (Conviction) will produce.

Hudgens can currently be seen in Beastly, while Fraser’s next film, Whole Lotta Sole, will be released later this year.
