Sophia Bush Jamie Chung Picture

Sophia Bush ("One Tree Hill") and Jamie Chung ("Lovecraft Country") have signed on to star in the upcoming drama "Junction" written and directed by Bryan Greenberg ("How to Make it in America") in his directorial debut.

The film deals with Big Pharma and its impact on American health care, adressing the opioid crisis from three different points of view: the CEO of a pharmaceutical company, a doctor and a patient. Each character comes face to face with their decisions and their role in the epidemic.

Greenberg also stars alongside Bush, Chung, Hilarie Burton, Michaela Conlin and Hill Harper. Here's what he had to say about the project:
"This is a very personal story to me, as I'm sure it will be for millions of people who have found themselves affected by this crisis. I'm honored to be working alongside the Verdi team, Aaron Kaufman, Anthony Gudas, and The Sandgaard Foundation to bring my vision to life".
Filming is expected to begin this spring in Rhode Island. Producers include Chard A. Verdi ("The Irishman"), Aaron Kaufman ("Sin City: A Dame to Kill For"), Anthony Gudas, Michelle Verdi, Chad Verdi Jr., Paul Luba, Scott Annan and Thomas Sandgaard.

Producer Verdi added in a statement:
"This film will change the minds of millions and show people just how greedy and corrupt our health system is. It sickens me how Big Pharma gets away with murder".
