Florence Pugh and Morgan Freeman to Star in ‘A Good Person’ For Zach Braff

”Garden State“ filmmaker will write and direct

Florence Pugh and Morgan Freeman are set to star in the drama “A Good Person,” the next film from director Zach Braff.

Braff will write and direct “A Good Person,” which stars Pugh as a woman whose life falls apart after she’s involved in a fatal accident. Years later, she forms an unlikely friendship with Freeman, who plays her would-be father-in-law and helps her lead a life worth living.

“A Good Person” is being introduced to buyers at the virtual Berlin film market. Rocket Science is handling international sales, and CAA Media Finance is arranging financing and will represent the film’s domestic distribution rights.

Braff’s previous film was 2017’s “Going Out in Style,” which also starred Freeman, and he most recently directed an episode of the Apple TV+ comedy series “Ted Lasso.”

Pugh is an Oscar nominee for “Little Women” and is working on Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling.” She’ll next be seen in “Black Widow” for Marvel and is also attached to another film at Apple TV+, a sci-fi called “Dolly.”

Freeman was last seen in “The Comeback Trail” and will next be seen in “The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife.”

Freeman is represented by CAA. Pugh is represented by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, Curtis Brown Group, and attorney Greg Slewett at Ziffren Brittenham. Braff is represented by CAA and Management 360 and attorney Ken Richman at Hansen Jacobson.

Deadline first reported the news of the project.
