You may remember just last month through various info channels and deductive logic that we were able to discern a more detailed plot synopsis for Clint Eastwood's next project Hereafter. Now Variety reports that Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation), will be joining the project which tells three parallel stories that eventually intersect as they all become affected by tragedy and hardship. Howard joins a cast that already includes Matt Damon, Cecile de France, and Lyndsey Marshal playing a trio of characters who are confronted and deal with unfortuante deaths in their family on very different levels. Read on for more info.
Super producers Kathleen Kennedy, Robert Lorenz, Steven Spielberg, and Frank Marshall are behind the film that was written by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon). The story follows a French TV journalist (de France) who suffers a near-death experience during a tsunami, a drug-addicted English single mother (Marshal) who loses one of her twin 10-year-old sons in a car accident and a man (Damon) who can talk to the dead but prefers not to. De France and Marshal contact Damon in a desperate quest for answers and consolation in their grieving. We're not exactly sure what role Bryce Dallas Howard will be playing, though.
Despite Eastwood's Invictus being just released this week (check out Brandon's review here), Hereafter has already been shooting for at least a couple months (in both Paris and London so far), and is just further confirmation that Eastwood is a machine that keeps pumping out films that I have every intention of seeing.
