Here’s today’s latest casting news:

Hit the jump for more on each casting announcement.

The Wrap reports paddy considinethat Seyfried will join Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts and Adam Driver in While We’re Young.  The picture centers on a married couple (Stiller and Watts) that strike up an unlikely friendship with a free-spirited younger couple (Driver and Seyfried), the latter of whom makes homemade ice cream.  Seyfried will be heard in this weekend’s animated film Epic.  She’s currently filming Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West and has recently signed on to star in Craig Zobel’s Z for Zacharia.

Also from The Wrap is word that Bernal will be the lead in Rosewater, Stewart’s adaptation  of the 2011 book Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity and Survival, from co-writers Maziar Bahari and Aimee Molloy.  The story follows Bahari, played by Bernal, “a journalist who leaves his pregnant fiancé behind in London while he travels to Iran to spend a week covering the country’s presidential elections. Instead, he winds up spending 118 days in a notorious Iranian prison where he is brutally interrogated by a man whose defining characteristic is the smell of rosewater.”

Once more from The Wrap, Considine is in negotiations to star in Child 44.   He and Fares Fares (Zero Dark Thirty) would join Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy; Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) was also in negotiations to join.  “Set during the 1950s, the story follows a member of the Soviet police (Hardy) who finds himself the target of his own government’s suspicions as he investigates a brutal serial killer targeting children.”  Fares will play one of Hardy’s trusted allies, while Considine’s role is being kept under wraps.  Those familiar with the book will probably be able to guess his character, though there is no confirmation one way or the other at the moment.
