Luke Wilson Is 'A Many Splintered Thing;' Chloe Sevigny Among 'Those Who Kill' & More

The Playlist By Cain Rodriguez | The Playlist October 29, 2012 at 2:54PM

Since leading the ill-fated Mike Judge-helmed “Idiocracy” in 2006, Luke Wilson hasn’t had a high-profile gig -- even something like “Middle Men” barely hit theaters -- but now the actor has snatched a role in the Black List-approved “A Many Splintered Thing.” First-time director Justin Reardon will helm the film, described as being in the same spirit of “Amelie” and “(500) Days Of Summer.” Wilson will appear alongside a talented ensemble that includes Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Philip Baker Hall, Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi with Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan as the leads in the the story of a man (Evans) who has given up on love, until he meets an engaged woman (Monaghan) at a charity dinner, by posing as a philanthropist. He pretends to be her platonic friend, all while trying to win her for himself, away from a man who doesn't like going on dates.

Since leading the ill-fated Mike Judge-helmed “Idiocracy” in 2006, Luke Wilson hasn’t had a high-profile gig -- even something like “Middle Men” barely hit theaters -- but now the actor has snatched a role in the Black List-approved “A Many Splintered Thing.” First-time director Justin Reardon will helm the film, described as being in the same spirit as “Amelie” and “(500) Days Of Summer.”  Wilson will appear alongside a talented ensemble that includes Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Philip Baker Hall, Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi with Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan as the leads in the the story of a man (Evans) who has given up on love, until he meets an engaged woman (Monaghan) at a charity dinner, by posing as a philanthropist. He pretends to be her platonic friend, all while trying to win her for himself, away from a man who doesn't like going on dates. [Deadline]

Chloe Sevigny's been spending more time on TV than in features of late, the conclusion of her five-year run on HBO's "Big Love" being followed by British miniseries "Hit & Miss," a recurring part on "American Horror Story: Asylum," an appearance on "Portlandia," and a guest spot on our beloved "Louie." And it looks like she's going to be continuing in that direction, as the actress has committed to star in the A&E pilot "Those Who Kill." A remake of a Danish series from "X-Files" writer Glen Morgan, it'll see the "Zodiac" star play a workaholic, haunted detective with a strong sense of justice, and a deep understanding of the mind of a serial killer. The first person to explain to us how this differs from EVERY OTHER FUCKING COP SHOW wins a cash prize. [THR]

Akiva Goldsman’s directorial debut “A Winter’s Tale” has added a veteran character to the mix in the form of Kevin Corrigan. You may recognize Corrigan from appearances in films as disparate as “Goodfellas” and “Superbad,” and he can be currently seen in “Seven Psychopaths.” Corrigan joins a stacked cast that includes lead (and ‘Psychopaths’ co-star) Colin Farrell, William Hurt, Matt Bomer, Russell Crowe, Will Smith and Eva Marie Saint. [Variety]

Rhys Ifans will go from battling Spider-Man to an adaption of the classic novel, “Madame Bovary.” Mia Wasikowska plays the titular character and Ifans will play “a manipulative merchant” who ruins her financially. The film, which will be helmed by “Cold Souls” director Sophie Barthes, also co-stars Ezra Miller and Paul Giamatti. [Variety]

Rafe Spall has come a long way since his appearance as the chubby co-worker of Simon Pegg in “Shaun of the Dead.” He’s gone on to memorable turns in films like “Hot Fuzz” and “Prometheus,”and now he’s set to lead the “Britpop satire” “Kill Your Friends.” Spall will play “an A&R man who, desperately searching for the next big hit, takes the concept of killer tunes to a murderous new level.” Owen Harris (“Holy Flying Circus”) will helm the film, which is scheduled for a early 2013 shoot. [Variety]

Following in the footsteps of children’s books like “Diary Of A Wimpy Kid” and “Nanny McPhee,” the five-book children’s series “Molly Moon” will be adapted for the big screen under the hand of Christopher N. Rowley. The “Bonneville” director has amassed a talented cast that includes Dominic Monaghan, Emily Watson, Lesley Manville, Ben Miller, Celia Imrie, Anne-Marie Duff, Sadie Frost and Joan Collins. Based on the first book, “Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism,” the film will feature young Raffey Cassidy as the titular character, “an orphan who learns the art of hypnosis.” [Variety]
