Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield) and Zoe Kazan (Meek’s Cutoff) have joined Abigail Spencer in Brin Hill‘s supernatural romance In Your Eyes. Written by Joss Whedon, all we previously knew about the film was that it centered on “two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined.” Deadline now offers a more detailed description, and the story sounds pretty interesting:
Stahl-David stars as Dylan, a boyish-looking man who served time in jail for robbery when he refused to rat on his accomplices. Now, he is living in a trailer in New Mexico. Kazan stars as Rebecca, an attractive but skinny and slightly awkward woman, who is married to an older doctor and living in Connecticut. The two have a powerful connection, and they can hear and see each other, even though they have never met.
Color me intrigued. Filming is set to begin soon in Los Angeles and Boston.
Following the rousing success of Modern Family’s debut last season, ABC originally slotted two new mockumentaries for this fall: Detroit 1-8-7 and My Generation. Over the summer, 1-8-7 dropped the structure, which is not the one I would’ve picked if polled.
But for better or worse, the format is more integral to Generation, which catches up with a group of 28-year-olds ten years after they graduated from an Austin, Texas high school together in the year 2000. An interesting premise, to be sure, and one I was looking forward to. My review after the jump.
