The cast for the the Will Smith movie Collateral Beauty is coming together fast, as just a couple of day after it was revealed Keira Knightley was in talks for the movie, Variety says Kate Winslet has started negotiations to appear in the movie.
The film is about a New York advertising executive (Smith) 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. The likes of Helen Mirren, Ed Norton, Michael Pena and Naomie Harris are also attached to star.
Alongside the more conventional elements, there are also actors playing walking embodiments of Love, Time, and Death. It’s not known who Winslet will play, but with Knightley set to be Love, there’s a decent chance she’ll be either Time or Death.
The movie starts shooting in the next couple of weeks in New York City, with David Frankel directing from a script by Allan Loeb. A December 2016 US release is already set, which suggests they’re already thinking this may be an awards contender.
