Eyre finds 3 others for 'Other Man' cast


LONDON -- Antonio Banderas, Laura Linney and Romola Garai have joined Liam Neeson in the cast of Richard Eyre's "The Other Man," the producers said Thursday.

Eyre, who wrote the script with his "Iris" co-writer Charles Wood, has taken just under a year to get the movie up and running (HR 2/12).

The movie is adapted by Eyre and Wood from a short story by German author Bernhard Schlink and centers on a man who discovers that his wife has another mystery man in her life and goes to find out who he is.

The picture, due to shoot on location in and around London, Milan, Italy, and Lake Como and at Ealing Studios begins production in February.

Eyre produces together with Tracey Scoffield and Frank Doelger ("The Gathering Storm") and Michael Dreyer ("Stardust") for U.K. production banner Rainmark Films.

David Richenthal and Mary Beth O'Connor produce for New York-based Gotham Films.

International sales will be handled by Ealing Studios International beginning at the upcoming European Film Market during the Berlin International Film Festival.

ICM will handle North American sales.
