Brittany Murphy, Jason Lee, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Broadbent, Tim Roth and Lili Taylor will star in Myriad Pictures’ fantasy comedy The Other Side, to be directed by producer David Michaels.
Variety says Myriad has come on board to finance and handle worldwide sales for the film. Diane Isaacs will produce, and Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico is executive producing.
Filming is scheduled to begin in Nova Scotia in November.
The script by Michaels and Phil Reeves centers on a young grad student, to be portrayed by Murphy, who must spend the summer working at a scientific institute on a remote northern island. She discovers an eccentric community of characters who are hiding a secret about a terrible tragedy that took place many years before.
