- Less than a year ago, some of the critics at the NYTimes pulled out a “Best-of” list makring the best in literature in the past 25 years. On this compilation of top novels, the Pulitzer Prize-winning name of Philip Roth was perhaps the most crowned (his American Pastoral was among the tops) and thus perhaps this is one among one of several reasons why another of his books is getting fast-tracked to the big screen. Today, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the MGM project is getting more crowded. Rounding out the cast of A-listers Penelope Cruz, Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson are thesps Peter Sarsgaard, Dennis Hopper and Deborah Harry. Clarkson and Sarsgard worked together very recently and had an excellent on screen repour with Craig Lucas film The Dying Gaul. The Lakeshore Entertainment pic to start lensing next month is based on Roth's novel "The Dying Animal" and scripted by Nicholas Meyer, »
Peter Sarsgaard, Dennis Hopper and Deborah Harry are joining Penelope Cruz, Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson in Lakeshore Entertainment's untitled film based on Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize-winning novella Dying Animal.
Nicholas Meyer, who adapted Lakeshore's previous Roth effort, The Human Stain, penned the screenplay, which follows a sophisticated graduate student (Cruz) who gets tangled up in an erotic affair with her hedonistic professor (Kingsley), a cultural critic obsessed with female beauty. Several years after the heartbreaking end of their relationship, she returns with a shocking revelation that forever changes his life.
The film is scheduled to start production next month in Vancouver. »
