Stephen Belber’s 2004 play, Match, earned plenty of praise on Broadway play Match, even if it ran for only a couple of months. Now he’s planning to direct a movie version and is lining up a great cast to help him. Deadline reports that Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard are now set to star.
According to the site, ‘Stewart plays a reclusive, eccentric Juilliard dance instructor and former choreographer, who is visited by a Seattle couple, (Gugino and Lillard) under the pretense of interviewing the dancer for her thesis on the New York dance movement in the 1960s. However, as the couple’s true intentions are revealed, he finds himself unable to dance around the impact of decisions he made long ago.’
Let’s hope the movie itself is a bit more exciting than that synopsis. Shooting is already underway in New York.
