With David Frankel recently confirmed to direct Helen Mirren now looks set to join Will Smith in the cast for Collateral Beauty.
The drama finds Smith as a New York advertising executive who suffers a massive personal tragedy. Shocked at how quickly his life is going into a tailspin, his colleagues hatch an unorthodox plan to help him, only to see it backfire in unexpected ways.
According to Variety, Mirren is in early talks to take on a role but there’s no guarantee that she’ll join the film. Once boasting Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara in the cast, the film now has Miren and Smith attached instead.
Production is scheduled to start early next year in New York.
