Thesp joins MacLaine, Plummer in indie
Michael Radford is set to direct, with Ed Saxon, Nick Veinberg and Jose Levy producing.
Pic follows a widower (Plummer) who rediscovers his joy for life after befriending his eccentric neighbor (MacLaine). Bakula will play MacLaine’s conservative banker son.
He was most recently seen on “Law & Order: SVU” and just finished production on the HBO Films pic “Behind the Candelabra.”
Bakula is repped by ICM Partners.
