Rachel Dratch, Trevor St John and Wendy Moniz have joined Vanishing Angle’s The Grief Of Others, the second film from Patrick Wang after In The Family.

The Grief Of Others is based on the novel by Leah Hager Cohen and centres on a couple who attempt to move on following the death of their baby.

Oona Laurence, Jeremy Shinder, Sonya Harum and Mike Faist have also joined the cast.

Production is set to commence in New York state in April and the producers are Jim Cummings, Erich Lochner, Matt Miller and Ben Wiessner.

“We could not be more thrilled to secure the strong cast that this project deserves,” said Wang, who adapted the screenplay. “Leah Hager Cohen’s novel is a powerful story of how unexpected generosity and human connections help us navigate loss and grief.

“The tremendous talent and sensitivities of this cast will breathe life into these characters on the screen with the same gorgeous detail we find on the page.”
