Directed by Peter Hedges, who also penned the script, the cast is led by Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton and CJ Adams with Rosemarie DeWitt, Dianne Wiest, Ron Livingston, Odeya Rush, M. Emmet Walsh, Lois Smith and Common.

The film is based on a story from producer Ahmet Zappa, who is producing with Tony winner Scott Sanders and Jim Whitaker.

“The Odd Life of Timothy Green," according to press notes, is an "inspiring, magical story about a couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim, and their small town of Stanleyville, discover a whole new view on what it is to love and be loved."

The production’s creative team also includes cinematographer John Toll, production designer Wynn Thomas, costume designer Susie DeSanto and editor Andrew Mondshein.

“The Odd Life of Timothy Green” will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
