I do, to varying degrees, like all the actors at the center of the next story, but doesn’t this sound like a casting report that would have hit us in 2000? As it goes, Deadline reports that Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss will co-star with Joe Mantegna and Kevin Dillon in Compulsion, which Egidio Coccimiglio has started to direct. And he’s directing the film in Canada, no less.
Scripted by Floyd Byars, the drama follows a cynical, grown-up child star (Moss) who “fears nothing about death” and a chef (Graham), who “fears nothing in life” and is trying to get herself on the Food Network. Mantegna and Dillon‘s roles aren’t being disclosed right now — I’d guess the latter’s playing a love interest to one character, the former a father. (This is based on almost nothing, by the way.) It’s a nice little quartet of onscreen performers, though I’ll require an extra bit or two of information before making some kind of concrete judgement.
