SCOOP: Jim Sturgess And Malin Akerman To Star In Christopher McDonald's Wildwood Inn - UPDATED

I have confirmed with the film’s producers that Jim Sturgess and Malin Akerman are attached to star in Wildwood Inn, the directorial debut of actor Christopher McDonald.

You’ll most likely know McDonald from Requiem For a Dream, Sturgess starred (and was superb) in Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, and Akerman was in Watchmen. Two out of three ‘aint bad.

The script for Wildwood Inn was written by Jon & Lisa Vandergriff. Here’s its logline:

When two young couples dissatisfied with their marriages discover they both stay in the same mountain cabin each year, at alternate times, they begin to explore relationships outside of their marriage via the cabin’s welcome journal.

So, it’s a bit like The Lake House but without the supernatural goings on? Sure sounds like it.

Lots about the film is still under wraps, including the names of the two other leads.

UPDATE: Jim Sturgess’ reps have told us that he is not attached to the project, despite the film’s producers yesterday telling me – plain and simply – that he is “attached”. Something somewhere has gotten lost in translation, but I can assure you it wasn’t at Bleeding Cool’s end of the line.

So, to clarify: The producers say Jim is attached; his publicity representative says that he is not.
