After booking what will likely be a thankless role in Adam Sandler‘s “Pixels,” we began to worry that producers didn’t know what to do with “True Detective” star Michelle Monaghan. Luckily, we were wrong. There are still some interesting roles headed toward the actress, you may just have to look harder to find them.
Claudia Myers writes and directs this drama about a woman and soldier who returns home from five years in Afghanistan and tries to become a mother again, to a young son who doesn’t recognize or remember her. The story follows her journey as she tries to walk the line between her duty as a parent and a patriot. It’s an interesting take on the war drama, and, while the notes seem familiar, here’s hoping it’s the actors who bring it up a level or two.
Co-starring Ron Livingston, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Freddy Rodriguez, Dash Mihok and more, there is no set release date for this one, but we presume with Voltage Pictures dropping the trailer, it’ll be headed to the Cannes marketplace at the very least, and perhaps appear at fall festivals.
