Michelle Pfeiffer & Chloe Moretz To Star In Tim Robbins' 'Man Under'

Chloe Moretz and Michelle Pfeiffer will be hoping that their latest project together will be somewhat more entertaining than the abject “Dark Shadows” which they collaborated on earlier this year. They’ve joined the cast of “Man Under,” a production which has also added an Academy Award winning actor and Academy Award nominated director in one fell swoop, as Tim Robbins will also star alongside Pfeiffer and Moretz, and will direct the dysfunctional family comedy.

Chloe Moretz and Michelle Pfeiffer are no doubt hoping that their latest project together will be somewhat more entertaining than the abject “Dark Shadows” which they collaborated on earlier this year. And so they’ve joined the cast of “Man Under,” a production which has also added an Academy Award winning actor and Academy Award nominated director in one fell swoop, as Tim Robbins will helm the dysfunctional family comedy while also starring alongside Pfeiffer and Moretz.

Ann Cherkis (who previously penned “The Secret” which starred David Duchovny and Olivia Thirlby) has written the script, which follows a family whose lives are transformed after they are exhibited in a series of photographs at the Museum of Modern Art. The film will be Robbins’ first theatrically released feature since 1999’s “Cradle Will Rock,” with his work behind the camera since being restricted to videos, TV movies, and most recently episodes of television’s “Treme.”

It sounds like a potentially fun little family movie, and based on the strength of the cast alone it looks like a project to keep an eye on. As previously mentioned Robbins is a past Oscar-winner, Pfeiffer’s a previous nominee, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if Moretz went on to win a little golden man of her own at some point in the future. "Man Under" joins an increasingly long list of films that Moretz has lined up, with “Kick Ass 2” and “Carrie” probably the most high-profile - and it doesn’t look like she’ll be disappearing from our screens any time soon regardless of the success of that remake.
