Davids Boards Synecdoche and Genova


Hope Davis has been set for two films, reports Variety.

She will first join the cast of the Charlie Kaufman-directed Synecdoche, New York, playing the therapist to a theater director (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in crisis over work and the women in his life. The movie begins shooting this month.

Davis will then join Colin Firth in Genova, the next film by Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart). The coming-of-age story concerns a British man who moves with his two American daughters to Italy as he tries to recover from his wife’s death.
