Toni Collette, Ioan Gruffudd and Richard E. Grant are joining Anne Reid and Hayley Mills in writer/director Jonathan Newman’s Foster.
The story centers on a married couple (Collette and Gruffudd) that is struggling to come to terms with the death of their five-year-old son several years before. Trying to adopt, a young boy named Eli appears on their doorstep.
The film is produced by Deepak Nayar (Bend It Like Beckham) and co-produced by Alice Dawson with David Mutch as executive producer. Filming is scheduled to start this week.
