Several talents who have been having a bang-up year are joining forces for BOOK OF HENRY. Sarah Silverman, Lee Pace, and Dean Norris have signed on for Colin Trevorrow’s secret project. The film does, however, already star Naomi Watts and two of the most interesting child actors in the past few years – Jaeden Lieberher from St. Vincent and Jacob Tremblay from the upcoming Room, so we can safely expect a child-centric story.
Silverman has been the toast of film festivals with her dark turn in I Smile Back. The film premiered at Sundance, she just has a screening at TIFF, and she will continue to be honored at the Mill Valley Film Festival next month. She is repped by UTA.
Pace has been king of the blockbuster lately, with wonderful roles in both The Hobbit film series and Guardians of the Galaxy. His next role will be in The Program, a Lance Armstrong biopic. He is repped by CAA and Management 360.
Norris, who is best known as Hank, the DEA agent brother-in-law from Breaking Bad, has been appearing in more and more films lately, including the recent casting in Fist Fight, the schoolyard comedy with Charlie Day and Ice Cube. He is repped by CAA and Industry Entertainment.
