Adrien Brody and Maria Bello have signed on to appear in the increasingly starry cast of Third Person, writer/director Paul Haggis’ ensemble romantic drama, according to Variety.
The movie follows three couples living in Rome, Paris, and New York, with each pairing representing the beginning, the middle, and the end of a relationship. Adrien Brody and Moran Atias will play the new couple who take a road trip through Italy. Casey Affleck was previously attached to Brody’s role, but it appears he’s been forced to drop out.
Liam Neeson and Kim Basinger are the Paris couple, who are both writers in the middle of a relationship, which gets complicated by by the appearance of another woman. Mila Kunis and James Franco are playing the embattled New York couple who love is coming to a close. No details were given for Maria Bello’s character.
Paul Haggis is directing from his own original screenplay. Principal photography has now started in Rome.
