Aaron Paul, Amanda Seyfried

Things are clearly moving quickly on the casting front for Gabriele Muccino’s new drama, Fathers And Daughters. He scored Russell Crowe for one of the central roles a month ago and is adding Aaron Paul and Amanda Seyfried to the ensemble.

With the script, written by Brad Desch, following a parental relationship across 25 troubled years, Crowe will play a novelist and widower struggling with mental illness as he raises his five year-old daughter. The story will also show the daughter as a grown up (Seyfried) as she faces the problems caused by her difficult childhood.

Paul, who has some experience romancing Seyfried after their roles on HBO drama Big Love, will play her boyfriend. Crowe is acting as executive producer on the film, but there’s no word yet on when it’ll start shooting.

Seyfried was last seen in The Big Wedding and has worked on Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West. She’s shooting comedy drama While We’re Young. Paul, meanwhile, finished work on a certain popular TV drama this year, and has Need For Speed, A Long Way Down and Hellion all jockeying for release next year. He’s currently busy acting in Exodus for Ridley Scott.
