Jennifer Garner is attached to star in The Odd Life of Timothy Green, the latest from director Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life). The film is a “modern-day fable [that] centers around a child-prodigy musician and his parents.” Garner will play the mother, while Disney has made an offer to Mark Wahlberg for the role of the father. Vulture reports that Wahlberg is expected to pass, and that Joaquin Phoenix is on the “next step” of candidates to be offered the part if he does.
Jennifer Garner recently signed on to star opposite Jeremy Renner in Better Living Through Chemistry. She can also be seen in next year’s political satire Butter, and in the remake of Arthur starring Russell Brand.
