In one corner, we have Toni Collette
and Philip Seymour Hoffman
(doesn't that sound good already?). The Hollywood Reporter
posts that PSH has just signed his voice up to star opposite Collette in Mary and Max
, a claymation project from Down Under. Sort of like a claymation version of Love Letters
, the film focuses on two penpals who foster a friendship over 20 years while one lives in Australia and the other in the US. I don't know if this is a tale of classic pen to paper, or something a little more modern with late-night Internet session while one goes to bed and the other rises. To make things even more interesting -- it's the feature debut for Harvie Krumpet
Oscar winners Adam Elliot and Melanie Coombs.
In the other corner, there's one of the strangest couplings I've read in a while -- Helen Hunt
and Liev Schreiber
reports the pair are starring in a new drama called Every Day
. What's weird -- they're playing a "couple whose marriage is strained to the breaking point." Nip/Tuck's
Richard Levine will make his feature directorial debut with the film, which starts production in New York this month. I don't know why, but this pairing just seems really strange. They're not far off in age, so who knows?
Weigh in below: Which pair do you want to see more?
