Katie Holmes to star in The Extra ManJanuary 20th, 2009 - 2:27 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 20 (ANI): Actress Katie Holmes has been roped in to star in a comedy film titled “The Extra Man.”
The film, based on a novel by Jonathan Ames, will be helmed by Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini of American Splendour fame.
Besides Holmes, the film will also star Kevin Kline, Paul Dano, and John C. Reilly.
Kline plays a failed playwright who works as an escort for rich widows on the Upper East Side. He develops a mentor-student relationship with a troubled aspiring playwright (Dano).
“This is a film for our times, these hilarious characters living on the edge of enormous wealth, scrapping for small pieces of the pie,” Variety quoted producer Anthony Bregman as saying.
“I suspect a lot of people will be able to identify nowadays,” he added.
The production will begin in February in New York. (ANI)
