A lot of things are going on in the new trailer for Paul Haggis’ latest film, Third Person. Liam Neeson is having an affair with Olivia Wilde, Adrian Brody is looking for someone’s daughter, and James Franco is fighting Mila Kunis over who was less believable in their last film together. Being a Paul Haggis movie, all of these threads have to somehow tie together. How or why they fit together just might make for an intriguing plotline. It depends on which Paul Haggis showed up to make this film.
While the new report doesn’t have character details about who Maria Bello will be playing, Kim Basinger will be playing Liam Neeson’s wife, and Olivia Wilde will be Neeson’s lover. Every other actor’s role remains a mystery.
Neeson and Basinger will be joined by Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Casey Affleck, Olivia Wilde and James Franco, which is an impressive cast working off of a Haggis screenplay. Almost all of those actors have been involved with challenging dramas and comedies in recent years

As Paul Haggis promotes his latest project, The Next Three Days, we’re hearing more and more about his ambitious plans for the future, specifically a remake of the Spanish thriller Celda 211, a movie version of the TV show
Haggis plans to develop the film outside the studio system, which means Third Person could be making its way around festivals before too long. Really, with just three central stories to work with
