Cast Already Includes Jeremy Renner & Jennifer Garner



The European Film Market in Berlin is in full swing this weekend and film deals are happening left, right and center. A lot of times these attachments and or pre-attachments are made to attract and or entice financiers and don't always come to fruition, but we'll give this one the benefit of the doubt.

Michelle Monaghan and Dame Judi Dench have joined the cast of "Better Living Through Chemistry," a 2009 Black List script which already has had Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Garner attached to star since last fall. Written and directed by David Posamentier and Geoff Moore the noirish thriller about a pharmacist (Renner) who begins a prescription drug-fueled affair with a trophy wife (Garner) that leads to the two plotting to kill her husband. No word yet on what roles will be slotted by Dench and Monaghan.

Posamentier and Moore recently unveiled "Peep World" at TIFF, and if all goes well with 'Better Living,' the plan is for the film to shoot in August. While Renner has used his post-"Hurt Locker" fame to launch himself into tentpole territory, we're excited to see him tackle some challenging material here, and the cast surrounding the project is definitely promising.
