James McAvoy To Star In A Relationship Story To Be Told In Two Films
In today's "Kill Me Now" dept., James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain will be starring in a relationship movie told from the perspective of the husband and also the wife. In two separate movies. Because there's no way one film could hold this kind of hard-hitting powerhouse Hollywood
'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' is going to be a double feature from Myriad Pictures. The story, according to THR, is about, "how a married couple in New York City deals with an emotional, life-altering experience, but it is being told in two movies and from two perspectives: one from the husband (McAvoy), a restaurant owner, and the wife (Chastain), who goes back to college."
The two films are titled, 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His' and 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers.' Both movies, according to Myriad CEO Kirk D'Amico, are made to stand alone but the viewer will have a more complete experience if they've viewed both. (They will have also helped D'Amico make two car payments a month on his Porsche.)
Cassandra Kulukundis is producing from a script by Ned Benson. We're wondering where the best friend and dog's perspective is going to fit in. Perhaps those are the sequels? No word on a shooting date but we'll keep you posted. From every perspective.
