Leto and Polley in Mr. Nobody

ON

Jared Leto and Sarah Polley are set to star in Mr. Nobody, a romantic drama from writer-director Jaco Van Dormael.

“Nobody” is described as a multilayered love story inspired by the “butterfly effect,” the chaos-theory notion that the beat of a butterfly’s wings can cause a storm thousands of miles away.

Set in the not-so-distant future, the story follows Nemo Nobody (Leto) who, at 120 years old, is the last mortal surrounded by happy immortals as he relives his real and imaginary years of marriage.

The production, due to start next week, has a budget in the $40 million-$50 million range and will shoot in Brussels, Montreal and Berlin.
