In the trailer above, you can see A Long Way Down stars Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots as four desperate strangers all drawn to the same spot on New Years' Eve with plans of committing suicide.
A Long Way Down has a solid central cast of characters, including the disgraced former talk show host Martin (Pierce Brosnan), the troubled mother with a disabled son Maureen (Toni Collette), the former musician J.J. (Aaron Paul) and teenager Jess (Imogen Poots), whose rebellious nature is only one of the many problems that torments her home life.
Aaron Paul has earned a lot of deserved acclaim for his portrayal as Jesse in AMC's Breaking Bad, and now he's joining the cast of the feature adaptation of Nick Hornby's A Long Way Down, filling the last of the four lead roles in the drama, which is set to be directed by Pascal Chaumeil.
An Education producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey have attached Mara to Brooklyn to play the lead, Lacey. They've likewise lined up An Education's screenwriter Nick Hornby to adapt Toibinís novel into a romantic drama, fitting considering Brooklyn seems similar in theme to the Oscar-nominated adaptation of Lynn Barber's memoir.
