CANNES: Clive Owen Joins Greta Gerwig, Julianne Moore in Rebecca Miller’s ‘Maggie’s Plan’

LONDON — Clive Owen is joining Greta Gerwig and Julianne Moore in the cast of Rebecca Miller’s “Maggie’s Plan,” a romantic comedy of manners which is set to shoot in New York City later this year.

Protagonist Pictures is selling international rights to the film in Cannes. CAA and Cinetic are handling the financing of the project, and representing North American rights.

Owen, who won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA, and was Oscar nommed for “Closer,” will play John in the warm-hearted and unusual love triangle, which Miller wrote from a story by Karen Rinaldi.

Rachael Horovitz, who was Oscar nommed for “Moneyball,” shares producer credits with Damon Cardasis and Miller, via Miller and Cardasis’ Round Films, and Horovitz’s Specialty Films. Further cast will be announced nearer the start date.

Owen most recently appeared in Fred Schepisi’s romantic comedy “Words and Pictures,” with Juliette Binoche, and in Guillaume Canet’s crime saga “Blood Ties,” with Marion Cotillard and Mila Kunis. His film career has included starring roles in “Children of Men,” “Sin City,” “The Boys Are Back,” “Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” “Inside Man,” “Gosford Park,” “The Bourne Identity,” “The International” and “Duplicity.”

Miller, who made her film debut with “Angela” in 1995, most recently directed “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” starring Robin Wright.

Gerwig was nommed at the Golden Globes this year for Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha,” and is set to star in spinoff comedy series “How I Met Your Dad.”

Moore has four Oscar nominations, two Golden Globes and an Emmy to her name. Among her credits are “Short Cuts,” “Boogie Nights,” “Far From Heaven,” “The End of the Affair,” “The Hours,” “Hannibal,” “Children of Men,” “A Single Man” and “The Kids Are All Right.” She has worked previously with Miller on “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.”
