Alan Rickman will be joining Katie Holmes, Evan Rachel Wood and Zosia Mamet in Liz Garbus’ upcoming comedy Taxonomy, which sales, finance and postproduction banner Goldcrest will be offering to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin next month.
The company confirmed the deal, reported earlier by Screen, on Friday.
Adapted from the 2013 novel A Taxonomy of Barnacles by Galt Niederhoffer and the first narrative feature from Garbus (Bobby Fischer Against the World, Love, Marilyn), the film will see Holmes, Wood and Mamet play three sisters living together in an enormous New York apartment.
Rickman — whose directorial debut, A Little Chaos, premiered last year in Toronto — will play their natural-history-obsessed father. Production is set to start this spring.
Niederhoffer will produce alongside Amy Hobby for Tangerine Entertainment, with Goldcrest’s Nick Quested and Pascal Degove executive producing.
