Greg Kinnear, Jon Voight and Djimon Hounsou Join ‘Same Kind of Different Me’

Greg Kinnear, Djimon Hounsou and Jon Voight have joined Renee Zellweger in Paramount Pictures’ adaptation of the bestselling non-fiction tome “Same Kind of Different Me.”

Based on the book written by Ron Hall and Denver Moore with Lynn Vincent, who also penned “Heaven is For Real,” the pic will be directed by Michael Carney from a script he co-wrote with Hall and Alexander Foard.

Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce through Disruption Entertainment, alongside Darren Moorman, Stephen Johnson and Hall.

Story follows Hall (Kinnear), an international art dealer who must befriend a dangerous homeless man (Hounsou) in order to save his struggling marriage to his wife (Zellweger), a woman whose dreams will lead all three of them on the most remarkable journey of their lives. Voight plays Hall’s father, with whom he reconciles thanks to the revelations of his new life.

Following the success of “Heaven is For Real” for Sony, which grossed $91 million on a $12 million budget, Paramount is hoping the same crowd returns for the trio’s latest adaptation.

Kinnear, who is repped by CAA, starred in “Heaven is For Real” while Hounsou, who is repped by CAA and the Safran Company, can be seen next in “Fast and Furious 7.”

Voight can still be seen on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” He is repped by CAA.
