With AMC’s “Breaking Bad” coming to an end two months ago, actor Aaron Paul, who won multiple Emmys for the show, is in more demand than ever, and Variety reports that he’s just signed onto co-star with Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried in Gabriele Muccinio’s drama Fathers and Daughters.
Produced by Voltage Pictures and Busted Shark Productions from Brad Desch’s “Black List” screenplay, the film tells the story of a father (Crowe), a famous novelist struggling with mental illness while trying to raise his daughter in New York City. Seyfried plays the daughter 25 years later trying to cope with her troubled childhood.
It wasn’t reported what part Paul might be playing although he already played Seyfried’s love interest once when they both appeared on HBO’s “Big Love.” His busy 2014 schedule includes a starring role in DreamWorks’ Need for Speed and Ridley Scott’s Exodus. Paul also has an adaptation of Nick Hornby’s A Long Way Down in the can with no North American distributor or release date in place.
