Pierce Brosnan to Play RPattz's Dad in Remember Me

Variety reports:
Summit Entertainment has set Emilie de Ravin ("Lost"), Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper to star alongside Robert Pattinson in "Remember Me," the Allen Coulter-directed drama that begins production in New York on June 15.

Lena Olin is negotiating to join the cast.

Pattinson plays a young man whose brother's suicide has split up his parents (Brosnan and Olin) and left him sleepwalking through life. De Ravin will play a young woman who, after watching her mother get killed before her eyes, seizes life to its fullest. Cooper is being courted to play her father.

Will Fetters penned the script, with a rewrite by Jenny Lumet ("Rachel Getting Married"). Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson are producing through their Underground Films banner.

De Ravin next will be seen in the Michael Mann-directed "Public Enemies."

Brosnan just completed the Roman Polanski-directed "The Ghost" and is shooting the Chris Columbus-helmed "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief."
What a cool cast! What a coincidence...if any of my regular readers noticed that I didn't blog last night, it's because I watched 5 episodes of Lost (Season 1) last night, and I love Emilie de Ravin in Lost. Now I have eyestrain from staring at the TV for such a long time.

Thanks to Lissie for the first heads-up!

  3. Thanks TCA, I was wondering who would be his leading lady and you always come through :)

    Love Brosnan. It's a tear jerker so take lots of tissues to the movie theater.

  4. What a FANTASTIC cast . . . I love all actors cast so far, including Lena Olin who's fantastic! (She played Sydney Bristow's mother on 'Alias' for anyone who may not remember.)

    This sounds like it will be a GREAT movie . . . can't wait until February 2010! (Wow, it's coming out FAST!)

  5. p.s. TCA, 'Lost' is fantastic . . . you may spend the weekend watching as many as your eyeballs will allow. :)

    There are lots of things with 'hidden meanings' so pay attention to EVERYTHING.

    Oh, and just ignore the few episodes that aren't as great as the others . . . I promise, it more than evens out . . .

  6. hopefully since Pierce Bronson plays his father they get to keep their english accents :)

    Eh i'm partial to Emilie de Raven, but only because I didn't like her in Roswell. They look good next to each other.

  7. I agree I'm on the fence with Emilie de Raven. I actually like her as an actress but not for this role. I would have preferred someone else but I hope she pulls it off since they casted her. Any word on who is playing his kid sister? Is that character on the revised script?

  9. I'm a huge Lost fan and therefore a fan of Emilie. She'll do a great job. Now that I see the rest of the cast I'm way more interested.
