Edward Norton, Michael Pena and Naomie Harris are in negotiations to join Will Smith and Helen Mirren in Collateral Beauty.

The New Line film centers on a New York ad man (Smith) who is sent into a downward spiral after a tragic event.

The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me helmer David Frankel is directing from a script by Allen Loeb.

Palmstar's Kevin Frakes and Likely Story's Anthony Bregman are producing, along with Anonymous Content’s Bard Dorros and Michael Sugar. Loeb also is producing.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who directed Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, was previously attached, but exited the project in October over creative differences.

Norton was recently seen in the Oscar-winning film Birdman, and voices a character in the upcoming animated comedy Sausage Party. He is repped by UTA.

Pena's recent credits include The Martian, Ant-Man and Fury, and he can be seen in the upcoming Dax Shepard-directed CHiPs film. He is repped by CAA and Management 360.

Harris plays Eve Moneypenny in the James Bond franchise, most recently seen in Spectre. She also appeared in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and Southpaw. She is repped by WME, Untitled and Independent Talent Group in the U.K.
