Crash writer/director Paul Haggis is setting up his next project, Third Person, and as always is assembling a nice ensemble.  Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde signed on to star, and The Wrap reports that Mila Kunis has come on board.  Moreover, James Franco and Casey Affleck are in negotiations to join the cast.  Haggis says the story is “about three story lines, three love stories, three relationships in three different cities that combine in a very odd way: New York, Paris, Rome.”  Neeson is a journalist and Wilde is a New York gossip columnist, but details have yet to surface for the other roles.  Haggis and Co. are gearing up to shoot Third Person starting in mid-October with a budget of $28 million financed by Corsan Films.

Kunis and Franco teamed up for Disney’s March 2013 tentpole Oz the Great And Powerful, which you can see a brief glimpse of in the trailer.  Or if you prefer, a longer look at their on-screen chemistry in this parody of The Hills.
