Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza (“Babel”) is in advanced talks and Radha Mitchell is set to appear in Lakeshore’s “Henry Poole Is Here” with Luke Wilson says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story, based on an original screenplay by Albert Torres, centers on a man (Wilson) who discovers that he has only six weeks to live. He leaves his job, fiancee and overbearing mother and tries to spend his remaining days in seclusion. But he goes through a miracle transformation, and his neighbors disrupt his plan.
The Mark Pellington-directed dramedy is scheduled to go into production in the summer in Los Angeles.
