Blake Lively and Jason Clarke are set to star in “World War Z” filmmaker Marc Forster‘s next film “All I See Is You,” it was announced Thursday by Michael Selby, president of SC International Pictures, which is financing and producing the project.
Forster will direct from an original screenplay he co-wrote with Sean Conway (“Ray Donovan”).
Set in exotic locations, “All I See Is You” is a unique and visually-driven psychological drama that tells the story of a blind woman (Lively) and her husband (Clarke) ,who upon restoration of her sight, begin to discover previously unseen and disturbing details about themselves, their marriage and their lives.
SC International Pictures in association with Wing and a Prayer Pictures, LINK Entertainment and 2Dux2 will produce the film along with Forster, Selby, Craig Baumgarten and Jillian Kugler. Brian Wilkins, Ron Perlman and Renee Wolfe will executive produce.
“I could not think of a better journey than following Marc Forster’s vision to bring ‘All I See Is You’ to screens throughout the world. I believe this film will redefine visual story telling. With a dream cast, an amazing director, and a wonderful crew, I believe the final result will cause audiences to be as excited as I am about this project,” said Selby.
“Blake is an amazing actress with a huge on screen presence who I know will bring enormous talent to the role and Jason is captivating, strong and fearless in his work. It is inspiring to me as a filmmaker to get the opportunity to work with the both of them,” added Forster.
