Sony Pictures Classics have just released their first trailer for Paul Haggis' (In The Valley Of Elah) Third Person.
As a director, Paul Haggis is known for his multi-threaded narratives that rarely want for melodrama or big cliched moments. His Crash (2004) still polarises and now he's back with another sweeping drama, Third Person, that extends the canvas to global dimensions and boasts a cast including Liam Neeson (Taken), Olivia Wilde (Rush), James Franco (127 Hours), Mila Kunis (Black Swan) and Kim Basinger (L.A. Confidential).
Neeson plays a novelist who leaves his wife (Basinger) to shack up with Wilde's character in Paris. For the writer, it's an autumnal romance that could have far-reaching consequences, a predicament that Franco and Kunis's warring ex-couple are already facing in the second plot thread. That pair, an artist and actress respectively, are vying for custody of their six year-old son.
The third element sees Adrien Brody (The Pianist) involved with a Roma woman (Moran Atias) whose daughter has fallen into the grubby maw of human traffickers.
Third Person gets a metropolitan US release on 20 June with no word on a UK launch as yet.
