Sony Pictures announced Tommy Lee Jones will star in Great Hope Springs to be directed by David Frankel. Jones joins Meryl Streep and Steve Carell in the project, with Sony Pictures aiming for a 4th quarter of 2012 release. Vanessa Taylor wrote the script, which earned her a spot on Hollywood’s prestigious Black List, with Todd Black producing and Nathan Kahane, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch, and Jessie Nelson executive producing.
The story follows “a middle-aged couple who after thirty years of marriage attend an intense counseling weekend to examine the intimacy issues that are threatening their marriage.”
Mandate Pictures says production will start in August 2011.
