Marcia Gay Harden signs on to star in The Librarian
Actress Marcia Gay Harden has signed on to star in director Juan Feldman's indie drama The Librarian.

The actress will play a timid librarian who takes a trip to Costa Rica to try and avert a midlife crisis. She accidentally hires a womanizing philosopher to take her around the country.

Juan Feldman is directing from a screenplay by Joel Silverman. Here's what the director had to say about Costa Rica's natural healing power.

"It's a magical place and one that really does have the natural power to help restore a person. The common greeting there are the words 'pura vida' - pure life."

Production begins next month, on location in Costa Rica.
