EXCLUSIVE: Christopher Walken, Amber Heard star in New York comedy-drama.
K5 International has boarded New York-based comedy-drama When I Live My life Over Again, starring Christopher Walken, Amber Heard and Oliver Platt.
Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur’s sales outfit will introduce the film to buyers at AFM.
Zombieland star Heard plays Jude, the daughter of a famous crooner Paul Lombard (Walken), but for the proud, feisty Jude, spending time with her egocentric, impossible-to-please father becomes her worst nightmare as he plots his big comeback.
The film is written and directed by Robert Edwards and co-stars Kelli Garner (The Aviator), Ann Magnuson (Panic Room), and Hamish Linklater (Fantastic Four).
Producers are Parts & Labor’s Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), Chris Maybach, Saemi and Saerom Kim at Maybach Film Productions (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Ferne Pearlstein and Lucas Joaquin (Beasts of the Southern Wild).
Executive producers are Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur at K5, Eugene Lee at Zip Cinema and Tae-hun Lee at Opus Pictures (Korea).
“We’re in excellent hands with Bob and our highly talented production team,” said K5’s Simon and Baur.
“Amber Heard as Jude is a revelation. She has real star quality; she’s a superb actress of real wit and subtlety who is truly fabulous in this lead role. Christopher Walken of course is a legend. His presence is electrifying. He’s by turns sly, intense, playful, and just hysterically funny.”
Oscar-winner Walken recently voiced King Louie in Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book and starred in Jason Bateman’s The Family Fang.
Heard is currently in production on Magic Mike XXL starring opposite Channing Tatum. She will next star in London Fields opposite Jim Sturgess and Billy Bob Thornton and recently wrapped production on The Adderall Diaries opposite James Franco.
