Stewart, Gugino and Lillard Set for MATCH

Trio sign up for dramatic comedy.

It has been announced that Patrick Stewart (‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’), Carla Gugino (‘By Virtue Fall’) and Matthew Lillard (‘Trouble with the Curve’) are set to star in ‘Match,’ a dramatic comedy written and directed by Stephen Belber.

Adapted from Belber’s 2004 Tony nominated Broadway play of the same title, the film centres on a reclusive, eccentric Julliard dance instructor and a former choreographer, Tobi (Stewart), who is visited by a Seattle couple, Lisa and Mike (Gugino and Lillard) under the pretence of interviewing Tobi for Lisa’s thesis on the New York dance movement in the sixties. However, as the couple’s true intentions are revealed, Tobi is forced to face the impact of decisions he made long ago.

The film marks Belber second directorial effort, having previously directed Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn in the 2008 film ‘Management.’

‘Match’ is currently in production in New York City.
