Routh, Ford Look For “Missing William”

Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”) has signed on while his real-life wife Courtney Ford is in final negotiations to join the indie film “Missing William” reports The Wrap.

Ford will play an artist living in Rhode Island who is forced to care for her husband after he’s tragically injured in a bar fight. Attempting to nurse him back to health, her childhood sweetheart and unrequited love (Routh) tries to coax her back into living her life again.

A complicated love triangle ensues, with the woman torn between the brain-damaged husband she loves and the hunky former flame who got away. The husband role has yet to be cast.

Kenn Macrae is directing and shooting kicks off next week in Rhode Island.
