Four More Join Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes


Four more actors have joined the cast of Francesca Gregorini’s Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, Variety reports. The new names include Aneurin Barnard, Alfred Molina, Frances O’Connor and Jimmi Simpson, who join the previously-attached Kaya Scodelario and Jessica Biel.

Fishes is said to focus on a young girl (presumably Emanuel) and her obsession with a new neighbor’s resemblance to her dead mother as the girl agrees to babysit the woman’s lifelike doll. Biel would play the neighbor, Linda, who has recently lost her own daughter and, due to shock, treats the doll as a surrogate.

Molina and O’Connor will serve as father and stepmother to Emanuel, Simpson a coworker and Barnard Emanuel’s romantic interest.
