Amanda Seyfried Joins Fathers and Daughters Opposite Russell Crowe


Following word earlier this week of Russell Crowe signing on to star in The Pursuit of Happyness and Seven Pounds director Gabriele Muccino’s latest, Fathers and Daughters, comes word, via The Wrap, that Amanda Seyfried is set to play his character’s daughter.

Set up at Voltage Films, Fathers and Daughters arrives from a “Black List” script by Brad Desch. Set in two different time periods, the film charts the parallels between Crowe’s character raising a five-year old girl in Manhattan while battling mental illness and, 25 years later, the life of the adult girl (Seyfried).

Seyfried recently headlined the biopic Lovelace and provided a voice for 20th Century Fox’s animated adventure, Epic. She’s soon set to star in Seth MacFarlane’s second feature film, A Million Ways to Die in the West.
