It always helps to sell a script in Hollywood is it comes with come big names attached, and that probably aided Collateral Beauty, which has been picked up by Palmstar Media, with Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara already set to start, according to Variety.
There’s also a director onboard, with Me and Earl and the Dying Girl helmer Alfonso Gomez-Rejon attached.
The movie ‘follows a New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy. When his colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression, the plan works, but not in a way that anyone imagined.’
It’s due to shoot this autumn.
