Maria Bello has joined the cast of MCFARLAND opposite Kevin Costner. The story centers on a new high school coach (Costner) who arrives to town and attempts to break the old habits of the student body by forming a cross-country team. Bello will play Costner’s character’s wife.
Niki Caro (“Whale Rider”) will direct from her own script that she worked on with Grant Thompson, Christopher Cleveland and Bettina Gilois. Producing will be Gordon Gray and Mark Ciardi.
Bello was last seen in “Grown Ups 2” and will next appear in “Prisoners.”
She is repped by CAA.
