Sony Classics Pictures has now unveiled a brand-new domestic trailer for Paul Haggis’ newest film “Third Person.” The upcoming ensemble drama, which is also written by Haggis, deals with three couples who live separate lives in three different parts of the world, but each are suffering from the same dilemma — the loss of a loved one, and the guilt that haunts them. Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Kim Basinger, Maria Bello, and Moran Atias star.
“Third Person” is scheduled to be screened next week at Tribeca, with a limited release set for June 20th.
Certain movies make things look so fun and appealing, right? This exclusive clip, from the upcoming “Better Living Through Chemistry,” should come with a warning much like the ones legally required at pharmacies: No amount of pills will make you look like Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell, nor are they likely to make you have as much fun as they appear to be having in this glimpse at the film.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s take look into the pharmaceutically enhanced lifestyle of Doug (Rockwell) and Elizabeth (Wilde). Doug’s a ho-hum pharmacist, rocking a lab coat and a snooze-worthy routine, until he meets Elizabeth, the recreational pill-popper trophy wife client with whom he begins an affair, as well as a nice little medical habit.
Check out the clip from the flick, in which Doug discovers the joys of frankensteining different combos of drugs for his own personal pleasure, heightening both his sexy lunch breaks with Liz and his boring work days. (No word on whether that heightening involves any of Rockwell busting out any of his signature dance moves, but we have a feeling that it’s highly likely.)
“Better Living Through Chemistry,” which also stars Jane Fonda and Michelle Monaghan, hits limited release March 14.
Olivia Wilde will star in and produce Meadowland, a psychological thriller that will be directed by Reed Morano from a script by Chris Rossi. Wilde is producing with Matt Tauber and Jennifer Levine will be executive producer. Wilde plays a mom whose son disappears, a jolt that puts her on an unexpected and dangerous path toward acceptance as she seeks out a relationship with a neglected boy and watches it take an unexpected turn. Filming starts in July in New York.
Wilde is coming off the Oscar-nominated Spike Jonze-directed Her, and the Ron Howard-directed Rush. She also starred in Drinking Buddies. Morano makes her directorial debut after serving as cinematographer on the indies Frozen River, Kill Your Darlings and Sundance premieres The Skeleton Twins and War Story, as well as the HBO series Looking. Wilde is repped by WME and Untitled, Morano by Gersh, Rossi by APA and Untitled, and Tauber by ICM.
The first trailer for the upcoming film “Better Living Through Chemistry” has just been released!
A straight-laced pharmacist’s uneventful life spirals out of control when he starts an affair with a trophy wife customer who takes him on a joyride involving sex, drugs and possibly murder.
Samuel Goldwyn has snapped up rights to Better Living Through Chemistry, the dark comedy starring Sam Rockwell and helmed by Geoff Moore and David Posamentier. Rockwell plays a small town pharmacist whose quiet life is turned upside down when he embarks on a drug and alcohol-fueled affair with a customer (Olivia Wilde). Michelle Monaghan, Norbert Leo Butz, Ben Schwartz, Ken Howard, Ray Liotta, and Jane Fonda also star in the pic which marks the directorial debuts of Moore and Posamentier, directing from their own script. Samuel Goldwyn is plotting a spring theatrical release and Universal Studios Home Entertainment will handle home entertainment distribution. Universal Pictures International Entertainment will distribute ancillary in the UK, the Benelux, France, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, South America, and select Eastern European and Asian territories. Better Living Through Chemistry is produced by Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter. Keith Calder, Anders Erden, Graeme Law, Peter Nichols, David Posamentier, Tim Smith and Paul Brett are executive producers. Paul Davis is co-producer and Richard Naing and Kate Sharp are associate producers on the Occupant Entertainment pic. Will Machin negotiated the deal for Metro International with ICM.
An offer has been made to Olivia Wilde to star alongside Patrick Dempsey in the romantic comedy WONDERFUL TONIGHT.
The film centers on an affluent bachelor (naturally played by Dempsey) who tries to rekindle a romance with the mother of his child, whom he had a one-night stand with two years earlier. If she takes the role, Wilde would play Claire Frost, Dempsey’s baby momma and an attractive, mid-twenties nurse. Amanda Seyfried was attached to star late last year, but no mention had been made on the exact specifics of her role. However, an offer out to Wilde could very likely mean that Seyfried has dropped out of the role of Claire.
Liz Glotzer, Susan Arnold and Donna Roth are producing. Christine Jeffs is directing from a script by J Mills Goodloe.
Wilde has previously starred in “Butter”, “Drinking Buddies” and “Rush”, as well as in the hit medical series “House” and teen drama “The O.C.” She will next be seen in Spike Jonze’s “Her”, which has been receiving excellent early reviews from critics.
She is repped by WME.
