It’s difficult to know whether Kim Basinger’s rather sporadic film appearances over the last few year are more to do with choice or simply because not that many people have roles for her. She was last seen in 2010’s Charlie St. Cloud, but has now signed up for a part in Crash writer/director Paul Haggis’ new drama, Third Person.
The movie is about three couples living in New York, Rome, and Paris. THR reports that the actress will portray the wife of Liam Neeson’s character, a writer in Paris. Back in April Olivia Wilde signed up to play Neeson’s girlfriend, which suggests the plot will revolve around some extramarital shenanigans.
Mila Kunis and James Franco are playing an estranged New York couple, while Casey Affleck and Moran Atias will be a new couple taking a road trip through Italy. Each couple and city represent the beginning, middle, and end of a relationship.
Paul Haggis will direct from his own screenplay, with shooting starting on October 17th in Rome.
