London: Actors Robert Sheehan, Dev Patel and Zoe Kravitz will star in comedy drama `The Road Within`, about a man with Tourette`s who goes on a road trip.

Directed by debutante Gren Wells, the movie centres on a young man (Sheehan) with Tourette`s syndrome, who, when his mother dies, is placed in a residential home by his father. He breaks out of the facility with two fellow patients - an anorexic girl (Kravitz) and his OCD roommate (Patel) - to scatter his mother`s ashes in the ocean.

The road trip movie was written by Wells and is adapted from the German film, `Will Meer`, reported Deadline.

Sheehan, whose breakout role was in hit E4 drama `Misfits`, will also star in the big screen adaptation of `The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones` alongside Lily Collins.

Like Sheehan, Patel found fame in an E4 teen drama, playing Anwar Kharral in `Skins`. He is currently starring on ‘The Newsroom’.

Kravitz is currently starring in `After Earth`, the sci-fi blockbuster starring Will Smith and son Jaden Smith, and will next be seen in `Mad Max: Fury Road` with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

`The Road Within` begins production in July.
