The cast of Gabriele Muccino’s FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS keeps growing. With big names such as Russell Crowe, Aaron Paul, Amada Seyfried, Octavia Spencer, Quvenzhane Wallis and Diane Kruger already attached, the latest addition comes in the form of MUSIC AND LYRICS star Haley Bennett.
With movies such as THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS and SEVEN POUNDS under his belt, Muccino is sure to turn this moving love story between a New York father and his daughter into one hell of a film. Moving back and forward from the 1980s into the present day, the movie follows the story of Jake Davis (Crowe), who struggles with mental illness while trying to raise his 5-year old daughter Katie, and the story of present day 30-year old Katie (Seyfried), dealing with the demons of her past.
Bennett is set to play Stacey, a college student who looks after Katie when she is young. She will next be seen in THE EQUALIZER with Denzel Washington and Chloe Grace Moretz and is set to star in the still untitled Terence Malick project opposite Michael Fassbender and Christian Bale.
