Behold, another project from a Friends alum: David Schwimmer will direct the upcoming film Trust, a drama about two parents dealing with the aftermath when their daughter becomes the target of an online sexual predator. Clive Owen and Catherine Keener will play the parents; newcomer Liana Liberato will star as their daughter.
This will be Schwimmer's second time in the director's chair, though the subject matter is a far cry from Run Fatboy Run. The plot sounds both intense and timely, and I have full faith that Keener and Owen will bring the required solid performances — especially after seeing Clive shine in a fatherly role in The Boys Are Back.
Are you glad that Clive is continuing to pick up deeper projects, or would you prefer he go back to playing the dark and mysterious guy we met in movies like Sin City?
