New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow Pictures have announced that filming has officially begun on David Frankel’s new thought-provoking drama “Collateral Beauty” which is due for release on December 16th.
Will Smith, Kate Winslet, Edward Norton, Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Michael Pena, Naomie Harris, Enrique Murciano and Jacob Latimore star in the project in which Smith plays a successful New York advertising executive who undergoes a deep personal tragedy.
Retreating from life entirely, his colleagues devise a drastic plan to force him to confront his grief in a surprising and profoundly human way.
Frankel is directing from an original screenplay by Allan Loeb who also produces with Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Bard Dorros and Michael Sugar. Photos from the first day of filming are already out at The Daily Mail with shots of Winselt and Murciano making out on an ice rink.
