Mila Kunis, James Franco & Casey Affleck Join Haggis' 'Third Person'
Before she heads into the science fiction realm for the Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending, Mila Kunis is turning to something a bit more low key. The Wrap reports that Kunis, her Date Night co-star James Franco, and Casey Affleck are all attached to Paul Haggis' next film, a mid-budget romantic drama called Third Person. Liam Neeson is also on board as a journalist while Olivia Wilde plays his love interest, a New York gossip columnist. Though it's been awhile since Haggis has been behind the camera, he's assembled a great cast for three interconnecte loves stories across New York, Paris, and Rome. Read on!
Kunis, Affleck, and Franco are truly some of the most talented and interesting actors of their generation, so seeing them all work together in an adult drama could be a treat if Haggis has everything in order. He's directing from his own script, and though he's an acclaimed writer/director, there's still a collective sour taste in Hollywood's mouth after he won the Oscar for Crash. Since then, he's only directed two films - the little-seen In the Valley of Elah and the Russell Crowe-starrer The Next Three Days - so it's tough to say how this one will turn out. But with an awesome cast like this, it's certainly a step in the right direction. Production starts in October, so check back for more updates as they become available.
