Williams and Rogen to Star in Polley's Latest
Actress Sarah Polley has led an interesting career which now balances directing and writing with her acting jobs. I haven't seen her in the most amount of films, but whenever I do in things like The Sweet Hereafter, Go, or Dawn of the Dead, I've been impressed. She rarely appears in mainstream films, preferring independent projects. I've always meant to check out her directorial debut Away From Her, which garnered a lot of praise. It's currently residing on my DVR until further notice. Now Polley's ready for her sophomore effort with Take This Waltz, a film from from her own original screenplay. The film will be a romantic comedy centering on a love triangle in which a woman struggles with infidelity. Recently Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen have signed on to star. The other lead has yet to be cast, but based soley on these people involved, I'm intrigued. Williams has always chosen interesting projects to be involved in and Seth Rogen seems to be branching out more and more these days. The project is still in the early stages of development, so it will be awhile before we see any other big news on it. Until then, let's hope this proves to be a worthwhile effort.
