James McAvoy has boarded Myriad Pictures' double feature The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her.

The films follow a married couple in New York City, who deal with a emotional, life-altering experience. The story will be explored in both movies, one from the perspective of the restaurant owner husband (James McAvoy), and the second following the wife (Jessica Chastain), who goes back to college.

Ned Benson is writing and directing both films with Cassandra Kulukundis producing.

Production on both movies is expected to begin in July.
