Ed Harris and Diane Keaton will topline the indie romancer “The Look of Love” with Arie Posin directing from a screenplay he penned with Matthew McDuffie.
Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis are producing with Exclusive Films Intl., having acquired international rights to begin sales at the European Film Market at Berlin.
Story centers on a widow who meets a man looking exactly like her dead husband, and that connection rekindles old feelings.
“This movie is about the hope that love can strike at any age, and that it’s possible to love deeply, lose terribly, and still love again,” Posin said.
“The Look of Love” is the first film project that EFI — a subsid of Exclusive Media — has come on board since it recently launched a fund to allow EFI to “pick up” movies and pay guarantees of up to $20 million per film in exchange for all international distribution rights or specific territories.
Posin directed and co-wrote “The Chumscrubber.” Curtis and Lynn noted in the announcement that Posin was mentored by the late Billy Wilder and added, “That influence is apparent in every scene of this new project.”
EFI will also be in Berlin meeting with distributors on James Watkins’ “The Woman in Black,” starring Daniel Radcliffe; George Clooney’s “The Ides of March,” starring Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood; the action comedy “So Undercover,” starring Miley Cyrus; and Martin Scorsese’s untitled George Harrison documentary.
Harris is starring in “The Way Back,” and Keaton was most recently seen in “Morning Glory.”
