Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney Back with Rash & Faxon in 'The Heart'
Following an Oscar win for writing The Descendants, and a fantastic directing debut with The Way Way Back, the duo of Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are reteaming with two of the supporting stars of the coming-of-age comedy. The Wrap has learned that Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney have joined The Heart, an action comedy starring "Saturday Night Live" veteran and Bridesmaids writer and lead Kristen Wiig. The film follows a cash-strapped woman (Wiig) who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met (Rockwell). Sounds like there's some flares of We're the Millers there, but it sounds fun. Read on!
Janney is in early talks for her role, which would have the actress playing Wiig's intimidating boss who just happens to have two boyfriends. "The West Wing" star can currently be seen in Bad Words, which is also great evidence of her ability to play this new role fantastically, but there's plenty of other films (Juno being one) that Janney has spectacular range and abilities. The Heart is schedule to shoot in May, and maybe we'll get another Sundance debut for the film from Rash & Faxon, especially since The Way Way Back premiered at the festival in 2013. Either way, we're excited. Sound good?
