After taking a bit of break, Will Smith got back to blockbusters with Men In Black III and the upcoming After Earth but his next project puts him into dramatic territory with Winter’s Tale. As we know, he’s joined by Colin Farrell, William Hurt, Jessica Brown Findlay and Russell Crowe for Akiva Goldsman‘s directorial debut, not now more cast has come in.
Deadline reports that Magic Mike star Matt Bomer, Eva Marie Saint (who has appeared in such classics as North by Northwest and On the Waterfront), as well as True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths have all joined the cast. Based on Mark Helprin‘s 1983 novel of the same name, the project is one of fantasy, taking place alternatively in 19th Century and present-day Manhattan, involving a thief who falls for the dying daughter of a rich patriarch who’s house he’s broken in to.
There’s no details on Saint’s role, but it’s said to hinge on a major plot point, while Bomer joins as Farrell’s father and Griffths as his mother. Yeah, we’re not sure how their ages figure in either but all will be unveiled sooner than we know as production kicks off from October to January in Manhattan for a likely 2013 release.
