Variety reports aaron-paul-fathers-and-daughtersthat Paul’s next project will be Fathers and Daughters.  The story follows “a father and daughter living 25 years apart in New York City.” Crowe is set to play “a famous novelist and widower struggling with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year-old daughter.”  Seyfried stars as the “now-grown daughter in present-day Manhattan as she battles the aftermath of her troubled childhood.”  Paul’s role is undisclosed, but it’s likely he’ll play Seyfried’s love interest, reuniting the Big Love couple.  Paul will next be seen in DreamWorks’ Need for Speed and is currently filming Ridley Scott’s Moses pic, Exodus.

The Wrap reports that rosamund-lupton-sister-book-coverBlunt is attached to star in Sister, based on the book that Blunt’s own sister, Felicity, represents as a literary agent.  Based in London, the “mystery follows Beatrice (Blunt) as she investigates the death of her younger sister, Tess, whose death is ruled a suicide by police. Convinced that her sister was murdered, Beatrice sets out to uncover the strange events leading up to Tess’ death, though she may pay a terrible price for the truth.”  Producers are currently looking for a writer to adapt Lupton’s novel.

THR reports that Zea will join Supreme Ruler, a story that centers on “a small-town go-getter (Livingston) whose dream of becoming “Supreme Ruler” of his local Buffalo Lodge is unexpectedly challenged by a hard-drinking womanizer (D’Onofrio). The two men are forced to travel to the Buffalo National Convention in Chicago in order to win the support of the organization’s national leaders.”  Zea stars as Livingston’s wife, “a cancer survivor who must deal with her husband’s obsession with the Lodge.”
