Closed Circuit and Iron Man 3 star Rebecca Hall has joined the cast of Tumbledown, a new romantic comedy to be directed by Sean Mewshaw from a screenplay by Desi Van Til. Hall joins the previously-attached Jason Sudeikis, Blythe Danner and Joe Manganiello.
Deep in the Maine woods, Hannah is unable to move on after the death of her husband, an acclaimed musician and the subject of the biography shes struggling to write, when she meets Andrew, a brash New York academic who has a different take on her husband’s life — and death. The unlikely pair must collaborate to craft the famous singer’s story and begin to write the next chapter in their lives together.
Sierra/Affinity plans to commence international sales of Tumbledown at this years European Film Market in Berlin. Kristin Hahn is producing the project along with Aaron L. Gilbert and Margot Hand of Bron Studios Inc.
Nick Meyer, Sierra / Affinity’s CEO, says, “‘Tumbledown’ reflects our companys ongoing effort to shepherd talented young filmmakers and deliver compelling films to the international marketplace. We are proud to bring this comedic love story starring an incredible cast to Berlin and provide it to moviegoers worldwide.”
The producers added, “Speaking on behalf of our entire creative team, we feel like we won the lottery with Rebecca Hall joining our cast. She brings such soulfulness to everything she does and when we imagine her incredible wit paired with the genius of Sudeikis and the enormous talent of our supporting cast, it gives us goose bumps that we can’t wait to transfer to the screen.”
Tumbledown is set to start production late March in Massachusetts.
