Sam Rockwell has scored the lead role in the dramatic thriller “Better Living Through Chemistry” at Occupant Films says The Playlist.
The story follows a small-town pharmacist (Rockwell) who is stuck in a loveless marriage and rediscovers himself through an affair with a trophy wife (Jennifer Garner) who introduces him to the pleasures of prescription drugs.
Things spin out of control when the affair escalates and the lovers begin plotting to kill the woman’s husband. Scribes Geoff Moore and David Posamentier are making their directorial debut on the project.
Rockwell replaces Jeremy Renner who was once linked to the lead. He joins a cast that also includes Michelle Monaghan as Rockwell’s distant wife, and Judi Dench as the narrator.
