The upcoming film adaptation of Arthur Miller’s (who wrote The Crucible, which you may have read a few pages of in high school) play A View From the Bridge has added two new names to its already impressive cast: The Departed’s Vera Farmiga and Alice in Wonderland‘s Mia Wasikowska. They’re joining Sam Neill, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony LaPaglia (who’s also serving as producer on the movie).
It isn’t yet known which characters are going to be played by which actors, with the exception of Anthony LaPaglia who’s playing the movie’s protagonist Eddie, the same character he won a Tony award for in 1998. Here’s a plot synopsis:
“[T]he 1950s Brooklyn-set story … centers on Eddie whose world is thrown into turmoil with the arrival of his wife’s cousins from Italy. He becomes obsessed and jealous when his niece Catherine falls for one of the cousins.”
Hmm, kinky. The movie is set to start production this summer in New York and Melbourne. (via The Playlist)
