Posted 12.11.09 by reelz
Clint Eastwood's Invictus is out today, but the 79-year-old director is already at work on his next project. Bryce Dallas Howard is the newest addition to his Hereafter cast, according to Variety. Eastwood has already signed Invictus star Matt Damon and Belgian actress Cécile de France.
The script for Hereafter was written by Peter Morgan, who also wrote the screenplays for Frost/Nixon and The Queen. A meditation on death, the movie follows the parallel stories of
three people. Damon will portray a factory worker with the ability to see the deceased, while France will play journalist who has a brush with death. The third character, a London schoolboy, has yet to be cast. It's unclear exactly what Howard's role will be.
Production is already underway, with shooting schedules in Paris, London, Hawaii, and San Francisco. DreamWorks has slated the movie for a December 2010, which means both Invictus and Hereafter will be at the heart of Oscar season. The Oscars have be good to Eastwood as of late, with five of his last six movies earning at least one Oscar nomination. He won his second Best Director Oscar in 2004 for Million Dollar Baby, which also won Best Picture.
