Williams will be playing a devoted husband in a marriage of convenience until a run-in with a guarded young man, played by Aguire, forces him to come to terms with his own secrets.

Production on the film begins this May in Nashville, Tennessee, with Camellia Entertainment's Monica Aguirre, Diez Barroso and Mia Chang producing alongside Jeffrey Gelber and Ryan Belenzon, while Barrett J. Klausman executive produces.

Montiel just wrapped his fourth feature, "Empire State," which stars Liam Hemsworth and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Williams has been keeping himself busy as of late, too. The 61-year-old actor is portraying Dwight Eisenhower in Lee Daniels' upcoming White House drama "The Butler" and finished filming "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" in the fall.
