Marcia Gay Harden books ‘The Librarian’

Actress to star in indie drama set in Costa Rica

Marcia Gay Harden will topline indie drama “The Librarian” as a woman who finds a new life path while touring Costa Rica.

“The Librarian,” produced by Classic Films in collaboration with Mano a Mano Films, is being directed by Juan Feldman from a script by Joel Silverman.

Harden plays a mild-mannered librarian suffering through a midlife crisis as she takes in the exotic flora and fauna of Costa Rica, where she accidently hires a man who’s a lothario and dime-store philosopher for her tour. Pic shoots in July throughout Costa Rica.

“It’s a magical place and one that really does have the natural power to help restore a person,” Feldman said. “The common greeting there are the words ‘pura vida’ — pure life.”

Feldman, who has worked as an assistant director for two decades, helmed the short film “Keepsake” and the play “Accepting the Pale.”

Silverman’s credits include “Garo” for Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney and “Undefeated” for Scott Stuber at Universal. Digital Domain recently bought his drama “Brian Stokes,” and he’s writing “Barney Ross” for Lawrence Gordon.

Harden has recently worked in CBS Films’ “Get a Job,” “If I Were You,” “Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You” and “The Wine of Summer.”

Harden is represented by UTA and manager Maryellen Mulcahy of Framework Entertainment. Silverman is repped by Jordan Bayer and Chris Sablan at Original Artists.
