News   Eyre Reteams Neeson and Linney for "The Other Man"; Banderas, Garai Also Star
Liam Neeson and Laura Linney, who have co-starred both on stage and screen, will reteam for the new Richard Eyre film "The Other Man." Antonio Banderas and Romola Garai will also be featured, according to Variety.

Stage and screen director Eyre co-wrote "The Other Man" with Charles Wood based on the Bernhard Schlink short story. Shooting begins (in the U.K. and Italy) Feb. 14 for the Rainmark Films and Gotham Films co-production, the trade magazine reports.

The film centers around the story of a man who is convinced his wife cheated on him and seeks out her lover.

Neeson and Linney starred in the 2002 Broadway revival of The Crucible under the direction of Eyre. They also appeared in "Kinsey" and, in separate storylines, in "Love Actually." (Linney will return to Broadway this season in the revival of Les Liaisons Dangereuses.)

They are joined in the film cast by fellow stage veterans Banderas (Nine, "Shrek 2," "Once Upon a Time in Mexico") and Garai (King Lear/The Seagull, "Atonement," "Dirty Dancing 2").

Sir Richard Eyre earned Tony Award nominations for his direction of Broadway's Skylight and The Crucible. Other directorial credits include Mary Poppins, Vincent in Brixton, Amy's View, The Judas Kiss, Racing Demon, Indiscretions, Arcadia, An Inspector Calls, Carousel and The Grapes of Wrath. His film work includes "Notes on a Scandal," "Iris" and "Stage Beauty."
