Davis ready for double duty

Actress to join 'New York' and 'Genova'

Hope Davis has been set for two films.

She will first join the cast of the Charlie Kaufman-directed “Synecdoche, New York,” playing the therapist to a theater director (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in crisis over work and the women in his life. Produced by Anthony Bregman’s Likely Story and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, the movie begins shooting this month.

Davis will then join Colin Firth in “Genova,” the next film by Michael Winterbottom (“A Mighty Heart”). That coming-of-age story concerns a British man who moves with his two American daughters to Italy as he tries to recover from his wife’s death. Laurence Coriat wrote the script, and Film Four is financing.

Most recently appearing opposite Richard Gere in the Lasse Hallstrom-directed “The Hoax,” Davis will next be seen in “The Nines,” the directorial debut of scribe John August, and opposite Robert Downey Jr. in “Charlie Bartlett.”
