Amanda Seyfried has signed on as the female lead opposite Russell Crowe in Fathers And Daughters, the epic romance that Voltage Pictures will introduce to AFM buyers next month.
Gabriele Muccino will direct Fathers And Daughters, a drama about a father and daughter in New York that spans 25 years.
Voltage is financing the project and produces with Busted Shark Productions of Los Angeles, Crowe’s Fear Of God Films from Sydney, Australia, and Italy’s Leone Films, which will also handle Italian distribution.
Brad Desch will direct. Sherryl Clark developed the Blacklist screenplay with Desch as one of the first projects through her new company Busted Shark Productions.
Voltage acquired the screenplay and Clark and Voltage’s Craig Flores attached Muccino to direct. Dominic Rustam negotiated the Crowe deal on behalf of Voltage.
Clark produces with Voltage Productions’ Flores and Nicolas Chartier. Crowe and his Fear Of God partner Keith Rodger will serve as executive producers alongside Romilda De Luca. Andrea Leone is co-producer.
Seyfried recently starred in Lovelace and Les Misérables and will next been seen in Seth MacFarlane’s comedy Western A Million Ways To Die In The West alongside Liam Neeson and Charlize Theron.
