Billy Crudup and Douglas Booth Experiencing ‘Life at These Speeds,’ Executive Produced By Sam Rockwell

Written by on January 11, 2012 

Billy Crudup fans — like myself, for instance — can take some solace in today’s news. According to Variety, the actor will co-star with Douglas Booth in Life at These Speeds, a drama directed by Leif Tilden and executive produced by Sam Rockwell. Based on Jeremy Jackson‘s novel — adapted for the screen by Marc Novak — the story follows ” a rural teenager (Booth) who loses his best friends in a tragic accident and channels his survivor’s guilt into an addiction to running, becoming a world-class distance runner in the process”; Crudup is playing “Booth’s coach and confidante.”

Tilden described the project as a “moving film about hope and forgiveness,” while Rockwell spoke enthusiastically about the prospect of having such a team come together for a story he’s supportive of. When asked about Speeds, meanwhile, Booth deemed it “a script […] that really makes you sit up and pay attention,” as well as a “an emotional intensity that really kicked me in the guts.”

Now, personally speaking, I have no way of knowing if this is true — even if, you know, an actor is always to be believed when they’re talking about their own project — but I’m nonetheless encouraged to see enough talented names get on board anything, no matter what impression one gets at first blush. With Cinema Revival producing, Life at These Speeds will begin production this March, making a 2013 release most likely.
