Russell Crowe and Amanda SeyfriedAmanda Seyfried and Russell Crowe will reunite again on screen after starring in Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables.” Now they will star in the drama, “Fathers and Daughters.” Deadline reported that Seyfried has signed on to play the titular daughter opposite Crowe as the titular father.

The screenplay, which earned scribe Brad Desch a coveted spot of the 2012 Black List of Hollywood’s best unproduced screenplays, centers on the problematic relationship between a famous but mentally ill author named Jack Davis and his daughter Katie. The story vacillates between his attempt at single-fatherhood following the death of his wife when Katie was just five years old, and her life as a thirty-year-old woman living in modern-day New York and struggling to overcome the scars of her past.
