Fouad Mikati, director of the cartoonish action flick Operation: Endgame is switching up genres for his second film, the psychological thriller Return to Sender. Having just Rosamund Pike and Nick Noltecast its lead roles last week, the film is already in production in New Orleans.
Because a movie with only two people in it usually isn’t fun, the rest of the cast was filled out today, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and Camryn Manheim, Rumer Willis and Illeana Douglas are all set to join Rosamund Pike, Shiloh Fernandez and Nick Nolte for the film.
Manheim is of course known for her man years on the series The Practice and Ghost Whisperer and her last feature role was in Cornelia Moore’s adaptation of the novel Camilla Dickinson. Willis is probably best known for starring with her father Bruce in 2005’s balls-out thriller Hostage, and you can catch her in the ESP horror The Ganzfeld Experiment. Douglas has been in a laundry list of indie films and TV shows (Action!) and can soon be seen with Jerry Lewis in the drama Max Rose and in Derrick Borte’s suicide drama Stars.
A blind date gone wrong is at the center of Return to Sender, as a small-town nurse (Pike) meets a mysterious man (Fernandez), who is not who he claims. Her life is changed and she is faced with building it back up. Manheim and Willis will play Pike’s co-workers.
Also on the casting call sheet were Keir O’Donnell (United States of Tara), Alexi Wasser (Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever), Scout Taylor-Compton (The Runaways), Stephen Louis Grush (NightLights) and Ian Barford (Shreveport).
Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
