Trio Joins Romantic 'Il Mare'
John Corbett, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Ebon Moss-Bachrach are diving into "Il Mare." The trio joins Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in the romantic drama based on the Korean film "Siworae," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story centers on an architect (Reeves) who moves into a new apartment and discovers a letter in his mailbox from a lonely doctor (Bullock). They begin a correspondence, only to discover that they're living in separate times -- two years apart -- and are only linked through the mysterious properties of the mailbox.
Corbett stars as Bullock's ex-fiancee while Aghdashloo plays her medical colleague. Moss-Bachrach portrays Reeves' younger brother.
Christopher Plummer has already been cast as Reeves' father.
The Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow project is adapted for English-speaking audiences by Pulitzer Prize-winning "Proof" scribe David Auburn. "Valentin" director Alejandro Agresti will direct.
Corbett, 43, has appeared in "Tombstone," "Serendipity," "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Raising Helen" and "Bigger Than the Sky." Aghdashloo, 52, was nominated for a supporting actress Oscar for starring opposite Ben Kingsley in "House of Sand and Fog." Moss-Bachrach has appeared in "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "Mona Lisa Smile" and has a part in the upcoming action flick "Stealth," which will be released in July.
