NEW YORK -- Matthew Lillard will star in the Lighthouse Entertainment 1980s-set teen comedy Endless Bummer, playing a surf shop owner who helps a group of teens track down a prized stolen surfboard.

The actor joins rocker Joan Jett, Khan Chittenden (Introducing the Dwights) and Jane Leeves (Frasier) for the feature. He plays a veteran surfer who built the board and joins its current owner and friends on a road trip from Ventura, Calif., to the San Fernando Valley to get it back.

Bummer is based on the real-life experiences of screenwriter John 'J.D.' Drury. Lillard joins the production of director Sam Pillsbury's feature this week.

Lighthouse's Steven Siebert (The Darwin Awards, The Rookie) is producing the film with Drury, Todd Wiseman and John Sclimenti (Riding in Vans With Boys). Rosemary Marks ("thirteen") is co-producing.

Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman will executive produce with Darren Quon. The Bummer soundtrack will include new covers of '80s songs from several Vans Warped Tour artists.

"This is a genuine story of a pivotal day for a group of young Ventura surfers in 1984," Siebert said. »
