Gabriele Muccino October 18, 2013 Will play the female lead opposite Russell Crowe… Amanda Seyfried (‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ Lovelace’) is set to reteam with her ‘Les Misérables’ co-star Russell Crowe for the Gabriele Muccino-directed drama ‘Fathers and Daughters.’ The drama, announced earlier this week, is a love story between a father and daughter living in New York City 25 years apart. Moving back and forth between the 1980s, the film sees Crowe playing Jake Davis, a famous novelist and widower struggling with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year-old daughter, Katie. The story will also focus on 30-year-old Katie’s life in present-day Manhattan where she battles the aftermath of her troubled childhood. Muccino, whose credits include ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ and ‘Seven Pounds,’ will direct ‘Fathers and Daughters’ from a “Black List” script by Brad Desch. Voltage Pictures’ Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing with Sherryl Clark co-producing.
