Quartet wed to 1940s drama

Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson and Rachel McAdams are heading to the altar for “Marriage,” a 1940s-set drama written by Oren Moverman and Ira Sachs. The latter will direct.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment is putting together the financing and Steve Golin’s Anonymous Content is producing. Plan is to distribute domestically through MGM. Kimmel Intl. will sell pic at Cannes.

Story concerns a married man who cheats; to spare his wife the shame of a divorce, he plots to kill her.

Deals are still coming together for a July production start.

Producers are Kimmel, Golin, Sachs and Jawal Nga. Bill Horberg and Alix Madigan exec produce.

Sachs last wrote and directed “Forty Shades of Blue.” McAdams’ last project was “Wedding Crashers.” Cooper will shoot while concurrently starring in the Peter Berg-directed “The Kingdom.”

An MGM spokesman said the studio is not aligned to the pic at this point.
