The duo will star in the indie drama “Collateral Beauty.” Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who is running hot following the huge Sundance reception — which included two awards — for “Me And Earl And The Dying Girl,” will direct the story about a New York City ad executive who slips into depression following a tragedy. So it sounds very promising, but our only reservation is that the script is from Allan Loeb, who tends to churn out stuff like “The Dilemma,” “Just Go With It,” “Rock Of Ages,” and “Here Comes The Boom.” 

No word on when it will shoot, but the project is being shopped around Cannes, where it will undoubtedly pick up some interest. [The Wrap]
