While the previous flick dealt with robbers in the 18th century, this new feature, Welcome to the Rileys, is a bit softer. The film will star James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart, focuses on "a man and a woman who have been driven apart by grief after losing their daughter, and are brought back together when they meet a troubled young woman." Somehow, there's "unexpected love" and "catharsis" in there -- perhaps between the stars listed? That would be, um, interesting. While production should begin in New Orleans this April for the above film, Jordan is looking to make her debut with Cracks overseas. A period drama set in a British boarding school, Scott describes it as a film "about misguided love and obsession, as told through the eyes of a group of elite girls in this boarding school." She'll start scouting locations next week.
Why are these features being lumped together? Handmade Films International is handling worldwide sales and will present the films as a package to potential buyers at Berlinale.
