According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mandy Moore and James McAvoy are in final negotiations to star in the indie dramatic thriller Twist of Fate, to be produced and financed by Foresight Unlimited.
Penned by Wendy Riss, the story centers on Chrissie (Moore), a working-class girl in love with moody and intense Joe (McAvoy). Their lives irreparably change after a car accident kills the fiancee of a local young socialite, a crime that they do not report. The film will be directed by Jennifer Elster (Particles of Truth).
Foresight topper and Monster producer Mark Damon is producing in association with Alessandro Camon, Alexandra Milchan and Moshe Diamant. Ed Pressman is executive producing.
With production scheduled to begin in May, the project will be presented to foreign distributors during the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival and Market.
