Writer/director Paul Haggis (Crash) has made a couple of last minute casting additions to his next project, Third PersonMaria Bello and Adrien Brody are the latest to join a cast that now includes Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Kim Basinger, Mila Kunis, and Moran Atias.  In the vein of Haggis’ Oscar-winning 2004 drama Crash, the film follows three intersecting stories set in Paris, New York, and Rome, “with each storyline following a different stage of a love relationship from the beginning, middle, and the end.”

Variety’s report doesn’t provide details on Bello’s character, but Brody plays the love interest of Atias.  We also know that Neeson and Wilde play a journalist and a gossip columnist, respectively, in the New York storyline.  Production begins this week in Rome.  Hit the jump for casting news concerning the 9/11 drama September Morn.

B.J. Davis will direct from a script by Howard Cohen.  The ensemble cast includes Ed Asner, Judd Nelson, John Heard, Esai Morales, and Daniel Sunjata, and the project will be shopped to buyers next week at the American Film Market.
