Jennifer Connelly to play lead in Ewan McGregor starrer 'American Pastoral'
Jennifer Connelly is set star opposite Ewan McGregor in upcoming film 'American Pastoral.'
The Lakeshore Entertainment's project, which is based on Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, would be helmed by director Phillip Noyce and would be produced by Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
The story centers on a former high school athlete, who inherits his father's business and has a perfect life with his former beauty queen wife and daughter, until his daughter becomes a revolutionary during the Vietnam War.
Rosenberg said that they always thought Connelly, 43, who would be playing the role of Dawn, the wife of McGregor's character Seymour 'Swede' Levov, to be apt for the part, and were excited have her in the film, which would begin filming in March 2015.
