BREAKING: Voltage Films has set Russell Crowe to star in the Gabriele Muccino-directed Fathers And Daughters, which instantly establishes this film as a hot sales title for AFM. The film is a love story between a father and daughter who live in Manhattan 25 years apart. The story moves back and forth between the 1980s where a famous novelist and widower struggles with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year old daughter; then it shows that daughter as a 30-year old woman in contemporary Gotham who battles her own demons that stem from that turbulent childhood. The script was written by Brad Desch (Shotgun Lovesongs).

Fathers And Daughters will be produced by Voltage Productions’ Craig J. Flores and Nicolas Chartier, and Busted Shark Productions’ Sherryl Clark. Exec producing are Crowe and his Fear Of God Films partner Keith Rodger. Romilda De Luca is also exec producer. Voltage Pictures will handle foreign sales, which get underway at AFM. They are circling a major actress to play the daughter. The film preps in December. Read More »
