Russell Crowe will star in The Pursuit of Happyness and Seven Pounds director Gabriele Muccino’s Fathers and Daughters, according to Deadline.
The Voltage Films project “is a love story between a father and daughter who live in Manhattan 25 years apart. The story moves back and forth between the 1980s where a famous novelist and widower struggles with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year old daughter; then it shows that daughter as a 30-year old woman in contemporary Gotham who battles her own demons that stem from that turbulent childhood.”
The script was written by Brad Desch.
