Anne Hathaway (“The Witches”), Tahar Rahim (“The Mauritanian”), Marisa Tomei (“Spider-Man: Far from Home”), Joanna Kulig (“Cold War”) and Matthew Broderick (“Love is Blind”) headline the cast of writer/director Rebecca Miller’s romantic comedy “She Came to Me.”
A multi-generational story in New York, the film follows a composer suffering from writer’s block who rediscovers his passion after an adventurous one-night stand, a couple of gifted teenagers who fight to prove to the parents that their young love is something that can last forever, and a woman who seemingly has it all for whom love arrives in the most unexpected places.
U.K.-based global sales agent Protagonist Pictures will introduce the project to buyers at the Cannes Marche du Film June 21-25. CAA Media Finance will handle North American sales.
Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler are producing alongside Miller and Damon Cardasis from Round Films.
Principal photography is set to commence fall 2021 in New York. Two-time Academy Award-winner Alexandre Desplat (“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Shape of Water”) will compose the score, and Kim Jennings (“Joker”) is on board as production designer.
Producers Christine Vachon, Pamela Koffler and Damon Cardasis, said in a joint statement: “After an incredibly difficult period in the world, we couldn’t be more excited to be producing Rebecca’s next film. Rebecca has created a hilarious, timely and uplifting New York story and we are thrilled to have such a uniquely talented cast join us on our journey.”
George Hamilton, head of sales at Protagonist, said: “It is just fantastic to be working with Rebecca again and it is a testament to the strength of her much revered work that she attracts talent of this calibre. Tahar, Anne, Marisa, Joanna and Matthew depicting these universal experiences of love at all its stages, under different circumstances, gives this special film true global appeal, and we can’t wait to share with our international partners.”
Miller’s last fiction feature as a director was “Maggie’s Plan” (2015). As an actor she was last in “The Meyerowitz Stories” (2017).
