Former "Beverly Hills, 90210" resident actor Jason Priestley is set to make his feature film directing debut on the dark indie road-trip comedy "Cas & Dylan" says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows a 61-year-old dying man who plans to end his life on his own terms. That quest takes a detour when the man ends up on the lam with an eccentric 22-year-old woman (Tatiana Maslany).
Jessie Gabe ("Being Erica") penned the script

Priestley has helmed episodes of various TV shows as well as a 1999 theatrical documentary called Barenaked in America about the band the Barenaked Ladies
