Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen are on board for supporting roles in the upcoming film by Stephen Daldry ("Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"), "Trash." Sheen will play a priest, and Mara an NGO worker in a story adapted from Andy Mulligan's 2010 novel of the same name.

The Third World-set tale centers on three impoverished young boys (newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) who unearth something dangerous in a city dump. Richard Curtis ("War Horse," "Love Actually," and the upcoming Rachel McAdams-Domhnall Gleeson starrer "About Time") has penned the adaptation. 

This marks the first time since Daldry's helming debut, 2000's "Billy Elliott," writes Guy Lodge at HitFix, that a Daldry film hasn't been scheduled to open during awards season. "Trash" begins filming in Rio next month, and Universal is eyeing a May 2014 release.

Mara has David Lowery's Western "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" coming out in August, and Spike Jonze's "Her," also starring Amy Adams, Scarlett Johannson and Joaquin Phoenix, on November 20. The untitled Terrence Malick Austin music scene film is currently set for 2014. Among other things, Sheen has "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in the pipeline for next year.
