Kline, McCarthy, Olyphant Team For “Starling”

Kline Mccarthy Olyphant Team For Starling

The one and only Kevin Kline is teaming with Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, Timothy Olyphant and more on the Ted Melfi-directed dramedy “The Starling” for Limelight.

Matt Harris pens the film in which McCarthy and O’Dowd play a married couple trying to rebuild their relationship after suffering a tragedy.

While the husband heads off to deal with his grief in recovery, she tries to heal in the real world – one that becomes surreal when she grows a beautiful garden in their backyard only to find herself repeatedly attacked by a starling that has built a nearby nest.

She turns to help from a psychiatrist-turned-veterinarian (Kline) with baggage all his own and he ends up making a larger impact on her life. Daveed Diggs, Skyler Gisondo, Loretta Devine, Laura Harrier, Rosalind Chao and Kimberly Quinn co-star in the project which has just begun filming. Melfi, Quinn, Dylan Sellers and Chris Parker are producing.
