Diane Kruger and Anton Yelchin are attached to star in the romantic comedy “5 to 7,” producers Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures and the sales agents, The Solution, announced Wednesday.
Victor Levin, a Golden Globe winner and Emmy-nominated producer, writer and director, is slated to direct the film, which he wrote.
Scheduled to start production in late February 2013, the film is set in New York, where an aspiring novelist (Yelchin) has an affair with the beautiful wife of a French diplomat (Kruger). Cultures, world views, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as love deepens in this romantic comedy.
"Vic Levin's script has us in tears – we're just not sure if it's from laughing or crying. We're excited about the grace and intelligence that he, Diane and Anton will bring to their interpretations of his beautiful story," said Curtis and Lynn.
Levin most recently was a co-executive producer and writer on the award-winning hit AMC series, “Mad Men” and previously an executive producer/writer on the popular NBC series “Mad About You.”
