Casting News: Sarah Polley and... Jared Leto?


Here's a weird news item for the day: Jared Leto has been cast in a romantic comedy titled Mr. Nobody. Wait, it gets weirder: his costar in the movie is Sarah Polley, the smart, thoughtful writer/director of Away From Her, one of this year's best movies (mark my words!). According to Hollywood Reporter:

Nobody is described as a multilayered love story inspired by the "butterfly effect," the chaos-theory notion that the beat of a butterfly's wings can cause a storm thousands of miles away. Set in the not-so-distant future, the story follows Nemo Nobody (Leto) who, at 120 years old, is the last mortal surrounded by happy immortals as he relives his real and imaginary years of marriage.

Nobody is serving as the English-language feature debut for Belgian director Dormael, who has been trying to get Nobody to the screen for the past six years. The production, due to start next week, has a budget in the $40 million-$50 million range and will shoot in Brussels, Montreal and Berlin.

Am I the only one who thinks this is super bizarre? Last time I checked, Leto had started down the one-way street toward becoming an angsty, eyeliner-loving, blogger-hating, fight-starting punk. Yet here he is, playing a 120-year-old man and yukking it up onscreen with the likes of Sarah Polley. Hmm...Maybe he'll be amazing?
