"The world is full of giants. They have always been here. Lumbering in the school yards. Limping through the alleys. We had to learn how to deal with them. How to overcome them. We were small, but fast. Remember? We were like a wind, appearing out of no where. We knew that being clever was more important than being the biggest kid in the neighborhood. As long as we keep our heads down. As long as we work hard. Trust what we feel in our guts, our hearts. Then, we’re ready… We wait until they get sleepy. Wait until they get so big that they can barely move. Then we’ll walk out of the shadows. Quietly walk out of the dark….. and strike." — [x]
Octavia Spencer and Quvenzhane Wallis Book Roles In Russell Crowe Drama ‘Fathers and Daughters’
Octavia Spencer and Quvenzhane Wallis have both joined the cast of the drama, Fathers and Daughters, which is based on a Black List script penned by Brad Desch.
The actresses will co-star in the film alongside Russell Crowe, Diane Kruger, Amanda Seyfried, and Aaron Paul, in what Variety calls ”a love story between a father and daughter living 25 years apart in New York City.”
Gabriele Muccino (Pursuit Of Happyness) is attached to direct the Voltage Pictures project, which is heading to the European Film Market in Berlin this month, to be sold.
Octavia Spencer will play the head of the psych clinic where Seyfried’s character counsels troubled children, while Quvenzhane Wallis will play a patient at the clinic who hasn’t spoken a word for a year, since her mother was killed.
