Edward Norton, Naomie Harris, Michael Pena in talks for Collateral Beauty
Collateral Beauty could pull off a trifecta: Edward Norton, Naomie Harris, and Michael Pena are in negotiations to costar in the New Line drama, EW has confirmed.
The trio would join Helen Mirren and leading man Will Smith in the film, which centers on an advertising executive who falls into despair after a personal tragedy, prompting his coworkers to hatch an unconventional plan to cheer him up.
David Frankel (Marley & Me, The Devil Wears Prada) is directing from a script by Allan Loeb. Frankel took over for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who left the project in October over creative differences, and Smith previously replaced Hugh Jackman.
A release date for Collateral Beauty has yet to be announced.
Norton was last seen in Birdman, Pena had recent roles in Ant-Man and The Martian, and Harris played Moneypenny in Spectre.
The Wrap first reported their negotiations.
