Actors fill ‘Living’ spaces

Renner, Dench, Garner, Monaghan join cast

Jeremy Renner, Judi Dench, Jennifer Garner and Michelle Monaghan are attached to topline the indie “Better Living Through Chemistry,” which Metropolis is preselling internationally at the European Film Market.

The $8 million project is helmed and penned by both David Posamentier and Geoff Moore.

ICM is repping North American rights for the pic, as well as Monaghan, Posamentier and Moore. Tim Smith and Paul Brett’s Prescience Film Finance also are backing the pic. Prescience fronted 65% of the budget for “The King’s Speech.”

Chemistry” tells the tale of a straitlaced small-town pharmacist stuck in a loveless marriage who rediscovers himself through an affair with a wild, drug-experimenting trophy wife.

Pic is produced through Occupant Films’ Felipe Marino, Joe Neurauter and Keith Calder (“The Wackness,” “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane”).

The script from Posamentier and Moore was on last year’s Hollywood Black List of best unmade scripts. The project is aiming for an August start in Washington or Georgia.

Metropolis and Prescience have been ramping up activity recently. Metropolis is Prescience’s international sales arm, a joint venture with Timeless Films. Both were in Sundance last month with Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle Irish laffer “The Guard,” snapped up by Sony Pictures Classics after a bidding war.

Pic, produced by Irish shingle Element Pictures (which is also releasing the pic in Ireland), is screening in the Panorama section in Berlin and has sold to most of the world.
