Domhnall Gleeson and Michelle Pfeiffer are in talks to join the cast of Darren Aronofsky’s untitled Paramount Pictures drama starring Jennifer Lawrence. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ed Harris and Brian Gleeson, Domhnall’s brother, are also in negotiations. Javier Bardem is also said to be part of the cast.
Details are sparse about the characters, but what we do know is that the film centers on a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their door and disrupt their tranquil lives.
The drama is slated to begin shooting in June and is set for a potential 2017 release.
Lawrence was always the “Black Swan” helmer’s first choice for a lead, and quickly attached herself to the project after meeting with him. The director had been previously chasing an untitled Evel Knievel biopic starring Channing Tatum, until he decided to turn his attention to this.
Aronofsky will direct, write and produce along with his partners at Protozoa Pictures, Scott Franklin and Ari Handel.
Gleeson is also in negotiations to board the upcoming Winnie The Pooh movie, “Goodbye Christopher Robin.” If he agrees, he will portray the bear’s creator, A.A. Milne. The Irish actor was last seen in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “The Revenant” and as the villainous General Hux in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
