Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney circling roles…
Filmmaking duo Jim Rash and Nat Faxon (‘The Way, Way Back,’ ‘The Descendants’) are to direct the action-comedy ‘The Heart’ with Kristen Wiig attached to star.
Penned by Rash and Faxon, the story follows “a cash-strapped woman (Wiig) who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met.”
Sam Rockwell (‘Better Living Through Chemistry’) and Allison Janney (‘Mom’), who previously collaborated with Rash and Faxon on the 2013 coming-of-age comedy ‘The Way, Way Back,’ are in talks to co-star.
Filming is set to get underway in May in North Carolina, with Kevin J. Walsh producing alongside Steven Rales and Nora Skinner of Indian Paintbrush.
