EXCLUSIVE: Luke Wilson will star with Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Aubrey Plaza, and Giovanni Ribisi in A Many Splintered Thing, the Justin Reardon-directed film for McG’s Wonderland Sound & Vision and Voltage Pictures. Production begins November 3 in Los Angeles.

In the vein of Amelie and (500) Days Of Summer, the film tells the story of a young man disillusioned by love who meets a breathtaking young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Turns out that she’s engaged. Challenged by the chase, and egged on by his friends, he feigns a platonic relationship in order to keep seeing her as he tries to conquer her heart. Grace will play the poser’s best friend. The film is being produced by Voltage’s Nicolas Chartier and Craig Flores and Wonderland’s McG and Mary Viola. Evans is exec producer.
