Casting- und Storynews zu Eastwoods "Hereafter"

Belgian actress Cecile de France has signed to star opposite Matt Damon in Clint Eastwood's supernatural drama "Hereafter" for Warner Bros.

"Hereafter," penned by Peter Morgan, tells the story of three people who are touched by death in different ways. De France, whose credits include "High Tension" and "Russian Dolls," will portray a French journalist who has a near-death experience.

Principal photography began last month on "Hereafter," produced by Eastwood, Kathleen Kennedy and Robert Lorenz. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Peter Morgan and Tim Moore are the exec producers.

Filming will take place in Paris, London, Hawaii and San Francisco. Pic is slated for release in December 2010.

Damon stars opposite Morgan Freeman in Eastwood's "Invictus," the true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa's underdog rugby team to help unite their country. "Invictus" is set to open Dec. 11.

Interessant ist an diesem Ausschnitt, abgesehen davon, dass Cecile de France gecastet wurde, dass die Dreharbeiten schon vor einem Monat angefangen haben, im Grunde aber wenig über den Plot bekannt ist, sieht man einmal von der markierten Stelle im Variety-Artikel ab.

Alex Billington von FirstShowing.net hat dafür wohl ein paar heißere News in Sachen Story, die man hier nachlesen kann.

The film tells three parallel stories that eventually intersect – about a French TV journalist, played by Cecile de France, who suffers a near-death experience during the Asian tsunami of 2004; a drug-addicted English single mother, played by Lyndsey Marshal, who loses one of her twin 10-year-old sons in a car accident; and [Matt] Damon's character, who can talk to the dead but prefers not to. De France and Marshal contact Damon in a desperate quest for answers and consolation.

Klingt verdammt interessant aber auch ungewohnt - jedenfalls für einen Eastwood-Film und ich bin wirklich gespannt, was aus dem Film wird. Leider muss man noch ein Jahr warten, bis er in die Kinos kommt.
