Amanda Seyfried will re-team with her “Les Miserables” co-star Russell Crowe for Gabriele Muccino’s drama “Fathers and Daughters” at Voltage Pictures, Busted Shark Prods., Fear of God Films and Leone Films.
The film deals with two different time periods in the lives of a father and daughter who live in Manhattan.
The first period is in the 1980s in which a famous novelist and widower (Crowe) struggles with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year old daughter.
The second follows that now 30-year old daughter (Seyfried) who battles her own turbulent childhood demons in contemporary New York.
Brad Desch (“Shotgun Lovesongs”) penned the script, while Craig J. Flores, Nicolas Chartier, and Sherryl Clark will produce. Pre-production aims to begin in December.
