Justine Bateman will make her feature film directorial debut with the independent drama, “Violet” starring Dree Hemingway in the title role, Variety has learned exclusively.
The script, written by Bateman, follows a rising film executive who lives her life according to “the voice” in her head.

I was a big fan of the Freeform show “Make It or Break It,” about the lives of a group of elite gymnasts working toward their dream of competing in the Olympics. Even typing that sentence, I know how hokey it sounds, and yes, it touched on all the clichés about women’s gymnastics – eating disorders, overburdened parents, inappropriate relationships with coaches – but you know what, all those things bubble up in the real sport with depressing regularity.

Peter Segal will direct the film, which was developed by STXfilms with Lopez from an idea conceived by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Justin Zackham.
The movie is in the vein of “Maid in Manhattan” and “Working Girl.” Lopez will play a big-box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle, and gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree.
Hudgens will play a young executive at a consumer goods company. She’s currently filming Ken Marino’s “Dog Days,” and most recently starred in the NBC series “Powerless.” Her additional credits include “Spring Breakers,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Machete Kills,” the Broadway revival of “Gigi,” and as Rizzo in “Grease: Live” in 2016.
“Second Act” is written by Zackham (“Lights Out”) and Goldsmith-Thomas. Producers are Goldsmith-Thomas, Lopez, Zackham, and Benny Medina.
The veteran film and TV actor will guest-star on Season 3 of the NBC drama as Dr. Jaffrey, a world-renowned heart surgeon who is the mentor of Dr. Rhodes’ new rival, Dr. Bekkar (Norma Kuhling), per The Hollywood Reporter.
