Julie Christie, Eyeworks New Zealand CEO, will executive produce alongside Eyeworks New Zealand who will partner on the production. Lisa Wilson's Parlay Films is handling international rights to the film that is set to lens in Spring 2012. The film will shoot in multiple cities that will include London, Mumbai and New York.
Cities reunites Dunst and Bloom who first appeared together in Cameron Crowe's indie comedy Elizabethtown in 2005. Kirsten Dunst joins the cast in the role of "Kate" alongside Clive Owen. Dunst most recently won the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in Lars von Trier's Melancholia. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her supporting actress role in Interview with the Vampire and appeared in Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3 opposite Tobey Maguire. Her additional credits include Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette as well as Bring It On, Little Women and the romantic comedy .
Bloom is currently filming Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey marking the fourth time the film director and actor have worked together - Bloom also appeared in the blockbuster Lord of The Rings trilogy. Bloom's credits include the record breaking Pirates of The Caribbean movies and he can currently be seen in the highly anticipated The Three Musketeers.
Cities is a cautionary tale about greed and ambition that takes place in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high. Fortunes, both big and small are put at risk as people around the globe gamble that the financial market's meteoric rise will continue. In New York, a hedge fund manager (Owen) has everything he wants - money, sex and power, but he wants more. In London, a young couple just want to buy their first home, but it seems impossibly out of reach. In Mumbai, a cop fights against corruption between property speculators and his villainous colleague Seth (Kapoor). These stories will all dramatically collide in a world where the fortunes of individuals are interwoven with the lives of others across the globe they have never even met.
UTA's Independent Film Group helped to package the film and structure the financing, and will represent domestic rights with CAA.
