These days every time you hear the name Joss Whedon your brain just screams AVENGERS! AVENGERS! HOW THE HELL MUCH LONGER UNTIL THE AVENGERS?! AHHHHHHHHHHHH! …Or maybe that’s just me. Anyway, the point is the Almighty Whedon is a busy man with more than a few forthcoming projects on his plate, and among them is In Your Eyes, the indie sci-fi romance flick he scripted for production under his new Bellwether company. We don’t know much about the flick yet, but now we know it has stars. And here they are…
Deadline reports that Whedon and director Brin Hill have chosen Michael Stahl-David and Zoe Kazan for the lead roles in the flick, described as a “metaphysical love story about two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined.”
Stahl-David, who you might recognize from Cloverfield, will play Dylan, “a boyish-looking man who served time in jail for robbery when he refused to rat on his accomplices. Now, he is living in a trailer in New Mexico.” Kazan, who you might recognize from It’s Complicated, Meek’s Cutoff and Happythankyoumoreplease, will play Rebecca, “an attractive but skinny and slightly awkward woman, who is married to an older doctor and living in Connecticut.” The two have never met, but they share some sort of powerful connection that allows them to hear and see each other.
Intrigued? Well of course you are. It’s Whedon!
