People having affairs is usually more the preserve of drama and thriller than romantic comedies, but that’s what 5 To 7 is about, despite being designated as a rom-com. It’s been announced that Anton Yelchin and Diane Kruger have signed on to star in the film, which will be written and directed by Victor Levin.
Yelchin will play a young novelist living in New York who begins an affair with the wife of a French diplomat (Kruger). The makers of the movie suggest, “Cultures, world views, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as love deepens, with remarkable results in this romantic comedy.”
Levin’s previous writing credits include the film Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!, and episodes of shows such as Mad Men, Mad About You and The Larry Sander’s Show However this will be his first feature film as a director. Production on the new film is planned for late February 2013. (Source: Variety)
