A legend, a hipster multi-hyphenate, and a rising star and filmmaker all coming together? Could be something special or...something else, but "Terri" director Azazel Jacobs is certainly raising the bar for his next effort.

Glenn Close, James Franco and Brit Marling will star in the drama "The Grace That Keeps This World." Penned by Matthew Aldrich ("Cleaner," "Father Daughter Time" that has Matt Damon attached to direct and star), and based on the book by Tom Bailey, the story centers around a father in a small town whose relationship with his sons is fraying following an investigation into hunting violations. Here's the book synopsis from Amazon:

Gary and Susan Hazen—high school sweethearts married for many years, born and bred in the Adirondack community of Lost Lake—live a simple and honest life and have instilled values in their two grown sons by example. But despite their efforts, Gary senses that his sons are starting to pull away and can’t help but feel he is at fault. His younger son, Kevin, has ambitions that extend far beyond the snowy edges of their small town. And his elder, Gary David, so fears disappointing his father that he is keeping an important part of his life secret.

As for when it will shoot? No word yet. Marling is busy this fall with the Terrence Malick produced "Green Blade Rises," while Franco is in the midst of production on his directorial outing "As I Lay Dying" (set pics here). But it all looks promising, and it's certainly a big step up for Jacobs. [Deadline]
