23 Apr 2014
Oscar winner Rachel Weisz, who made her Broadway debut in this season's Betrayal, and Tony Award nominee Toni Collette are attached to star in the comedy-drama "Miss You Already," according to Deadline.com.
Catherine Hardwicke is slated to direct the film, which casts the pair as lifelong best friends whose relationship is tested as they confront a crisis.
Morwenna Banks wrote "Miss You Already," which plans to begin shooting in September, based on personal experience.
Weisz is an Oscar winner for "The Constant Gardener." Collette, who currently stars in Broadway's The Realistic Joneses, was Tony-nominated for her performance in The Wild Party.
The Salt Company is co-producing the film with Exponential Media and Maven Pictures. Christopher Simon and Felix Vossen of Embargo Films are producing. Banks, Hardwicke, Horley, James Norrie, Barnaby Southcombe, Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler are executive producers.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
