Sarsgaard, Hopper lastest cast additions

12 04 2007

Peter Sarsgaard, Dennis Hopper and Deborah Harry are joining the cast of an untitled film based on Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novella Dying Animal.
Penelope Cruz, Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson are already aboard the Lakeshore Entertainment project, which will be directed by Isabel Coixet (The Secret Life of Words).
Cruz plays a sophisticated graduate student who gets tangled up in an erotic affair with her hedonistic professor (Kingsley), a cultural critic obsessed with female beauty. Several years after the heartbreaking end of their relationship, she returns with a shocking revelation that forever changes his life.
The film is scheduled to start production next month in Vancouver.
The film marks Lakeshore’s second Roth adaptation after director Robert Benton’s poorly received drama The Human Stain, in which Anthony Hopkins played a black man. (Reuters)
