Director Paul Haggis’s latest drama, Third Person has officially started production today as Variety brings word that Adrien Brody and Maria Bello have joined the cast. They join Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Kim Basinger.
The movie centers on three key storylines, in three different cities, that are all interconnected. They are described as follows:
(Paris) Michael, a writer who recently left his wife, receives a visit from his lover Anna. The story explores their very complicated on/off relationship due to her inability to commit because of a terrible secret.
(New York) Julia has recently been charged with attempting to kill her son, a charge which she firmly denies. As a result of these charges, her son is now in the custody of his father Rick who’s trying everything in his power to take the boy away from her. Julia is trying at all costs to regain custody of her son.
(Rome) Sean, an American business man on a trip to Italy, falls in love with an Italian woman, Monica. Sean is inevitably drawn into a plot where he tries to free Monica’s daughter who has been kidnapped by an Italian gangster and is being held for ransom. Emotions run high as we and Sean question whether this is a set up or not.
Brody most recently starred in Midnight in Paris while Mario Bello was on the big screen in last year’s Abduction.
