Paul Haggis has already gathered quite the ensemble cast for his next film, the romance Third Person, but he’s not done quite yet. Today it has been announced that Maria Bello has also joined the cast list.

Variety, which first reported the casting news, says that production is scheduled to start up very soon, with everything set to start Wednesday in Rome. Bello joins a stellar lineup that includes Adrien Brody, Liam Neeson, James Franco, Kim Basinger, Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde and Moran Atias. Much like what Haggis did with his Academy Award winning film Crash, the film will tell a group of intersecting stories, but instead of dealing with race relations the new movie will look at relationships. The trades says that the chapters will be told in “Paris, New York and Rome, with each storyline following a different stage of a love relationship from the beginning, middle and the end. Haggis wrote the script himself.

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.

While her recent television series, a remake of the UK series Prime Suspect, didn’t work out so well, Bello has been keeping busy and will next be seen reprising her role as Kevin James’ wife in the comedy sequel Grown Ups 2, which will be in theaters July 12, 2013. On the big screen Bello was last seen in the John Bonito-directed thriller Carjacked and played Taylor Lautner’s “mom” in Abduction.
