Harrelson journeys to 'Other Side'


Woody Harrelson is starring and Katie Holmes is in talks to join Giovanni Ribisi and Jason Lee in writer-director David Michaels comedic fantasy adventure "The Other Side" from Myriad Pictures.

Harrelson will play both Marston I and his son Marston II, who fund her scholarship. Lee will also play multiple roles, and Ribisi will play the grad student's romantic interest.

The film, co-written by Michaels and Phil Reeves, is set to begin production in Nova Scotia in January. Diane Isaacs will produce and Myriad CEO Kirk D'Amico will executive produce. The project was packaged by Philip Alberstat at William Morris Independent.

Harrelson's upcoming projects include "Semi-Pro." Holmes' upcoming films include "Mad Money."

Harrelson and Holmes are repped by CAA. Michaels is repped by WMA.
