Connelly and Bettany to Star in Born


Jennifer Connelly and real-life husband Paul Bettany will star in Born, a psychological thriller that Guillermo del Toro, Lawrence Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce, and horror veteran Clive Barker will executive produce.

Variety says Daniel Simpson will direct the project, which revolves around a couple who settle down in a seemingly idyllic English town to raise a family. Their perfect life is shaken when the husband, a claymation artist, discovers his characters are acting out a nightmare that comes to life.

Simpson wrote the script with Barker and Paul Kaye.

Stop-motion animated sequences, produced by Chiodo Bros. Productions(Elf, Team America) will be integrated into the film.

Steve Lanning and Cliff Lanning are producers on Born, which starts production in mid-August in the U.K.
