Nathan Lane, Julianne Moore and Greg Kinnear go back to school for The English Teacher

Nathan Lane will join Julianne Moore and Greg Kinnear in the upcoming comedy The English Teacher, Deadline reports.

The film will mark the feature directorial debut for Craig Zisk, who until now has worked heavily in television on such shows as United States of Tara, Scrubs, The Big C and Weeds.

With a screenplay penned by Dan and Stacey Chariton – both with limited resumes – The English Teacher stars Moore in the title role. Passionate about her job and much loved, the teacher’s personal and professional lives collide when an ex-student – a failed playwright – returns, and she convinces him to stage his unproduced play at the high school.

Lane will play the high school drama teacher who is roped into the production. Robert Salerno, one of the film’s producers for Artina Films, said, “Nathan is a dream addition to our already dream cast. This is a classic Nathan role.”

Discuss: Sound like a nice, indie alternative to Bad Teacher?
