Davis Visits New York & Genova

Hope Davis (“The Hoax,” “Proof”) has joined two new projects – “Synecdoche, New York” and “Genova” reports Variety.

In ‘Synecdoche’, she plays the therapist to a theater director (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in crisis over work and the women in his life. Charlie Kaufman directs the project which begins shooting this month.

She’ll follow that up with Michael Winterbottom’s “Genova” – a coming-of-age story concerning a British man (Colin Firth) who moves with his two American daughters to Italy as he tries to recover from his wife’s death.
