AFM: Telepool Takes Germany for Russell Crowe Starrer 'Father & Daughters'
Telepool has picked up all German rights to Fathers & Daughters, the new drama from Pursuit of Happyness helmer Gabriele Muccino starring Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried.
The project, which Voltage is selling at AFM, centers on a woman (Seyfried) whose current relationship is falling apart, who looks back on the relationship she had with her father (Crowe) 25 years earlier.
"It was a great script and it looks like a very nice fit for the so-called 'golden ager' demographic given its parent-child relationship theme," Telepool head Thomas Weymar told The Hollywood Reporter.
Voltage's Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing Fathers & Daughters together with Sherryl Clark. The feature is set for a December shoot.
Crowe is particularly active at the moment. In addition to Fathers & Daughters, the Australian actor made a trip to AFM to promote his upcoming directorial debut The Water Diviner, in which he will also star alongside Olga Kurylenko and which Mr. Smith Entertainment is selling worldwide. And Crowe has two more movies already in the can: Akiva Goldsman’s directorial debut, Winter’s Tale, and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah.
