Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly are in talks to star in Writers, a family drama that follows the tricky relationship between a novelist (Kinnear) and his ex-wife (Connelly) over the course of a year. The indie will be directed by first-time filmmaker Josh Boone, from his original screenplay. Filming is due to start in March in Wilmington, N.C.
If the pairing sounds familiar, you’re right. Kinnear and Connelly have already played a rather troubled married couple, in the religious comedy Salvation Boulevard, which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
