The trio are in negotiations to join Oscar winner Paul Haggis' movie, which is being produced by Belgium's Corsan.

LONDON – Mila Kunis, Casey Affleck and James Franco are in negotiations to join the cast for Paul Haggis' Third Person, alongside Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde.

The production is being funded, produced and hawked by Belgian based company Corsan and is scheduled to begin shooting on location in Rome in October this year.

Haggis is currently in the Italian capital in pre-production and is finalizing cast.

The script follows three inter-connected love stories of three couples in three cities, Rome, Paris and New York.

The Italian-set segment revolves around a young couple on a road trip, to be played be Affleck and Moran Atias.

Both Neeson and Wilde worked with Haggis on The Next Three Days and will play writers in the Paris-set section of the film.

Kunis is negotiating to play one half of an estranged couple in New York, with Franco playing her partner in the segment.

"These are complex characters in a challenging story; I'm humbled that so many talented people have placed their faith in me," Haggis said.

Corsan CEO Breuls will produce the movie alongside Haggis and his producing-partner Nozik.

Added Haggis: "I am grateful to have such terrific producing partners in Paul Breuls and Michael Nozik. Now I just need to survive five months of amazing pasta.“

Breuls said the project "exemplifies the kind of film" his company wants to make.

"Corsan's ambition has always been to develop creative partnerships with great filmmakers and give them the space and support to create artistic yet highly commercial films," Breuls said.

Corsan World Sales will be handling international rights to the film in Toronto next month.
