Russell Crowe to Star in Gabriele Muccino’s Fathers and Daughters


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.
