There probably isn’t a person alive who has not been shaped, in some way, by some lingering childhood trauma or another. In Gabriele Muccino‘s Fathers and Daughters, those scars take center stage. Russell Crowe plays a writer and the doting father of an adorable daughter named Katie. But a painful incident tears the family apart, leaving little Katie to be raised by her aunt (played by Diane Kruger). Decades later, she’s grown into a young woman played by Amanda Seyfried, a social worker who deals with orphaned children while struggling with her own daddy issues.
Aaron Paul plays a nice young man who woos the grown-up Katie, and Quvenzhané Walls appears as particularly troubled charge of Katie’s. Octavia Spencer and Jane Fonda are also among the supporting cast. Watch the Fathers and Daughters trailer after the jump. Read More »
We’ve got two trailers that show off the film Fathers And Daughters from Seven Pounds and The Pursuit of Happiness director Gabriele Muccino: a quick trailer from Japan, and a much longer (but not necessarily better) international trailer with more footage. The family drama stars Russell Crowe as a widower father, and Amanda Seyfried as his daughter whose early years left her less than capable of forging healthy relationships.
The supporting cast here is notable, too, with Aaron Paul, Bruce Greenwood, Diane Kruger, Jane Fonda, Janet McTeer, Octavia Spencer, Quvenzhané Wallis, and Kylie Rogers on hand to help move things along — see some of them at work in the main Fathers and Daughters trailer below. Read More »

Before Jesse Pinkman ever fell under the sway of Mr. White, Aaron Paul had already made an impression on TV audiences as Scott, gentle suitor to Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) on Big Love. The cute couple made their last appearance in the show’s 2011 finale, but the actors are now set to team up on the big screen for Fathers and Daughters.
Directed by Gabriele Muccino and written by Brad Desch, the Black List drama stars Russell Crowe and Seyfried as a father and daughter with a difficult relationship. Hit the jump for more details on the project.

Just as we’re enjoying the last of 2012’s cinematic offerings, the latest edition of the Black List has hit the web. The annual survey highlights the hottest unproduced screenplays of the year, as based on the votes of hundreds of executives.
The term “unproduced” is used rather vaguely here. Some of these scripts (like Ivan Reitman‘s Draft Day and Wally Pfister‘s Transcendence) already have a director or star attached, while others are still floating around in search of the right studio or producer. The subjects and honorees range greatly as well. Nazi hunters, Hillary Clinton, the NFL, and time-traveling teens are among the subjects of this year’s winners, and the screenwriters run the gamut from industry newcomers to seasoned pros.
Hit the jump to read the full list.
