Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon have signed to star in The Greatest. The drama will be the directorial debut of screenwriter Shana Feste.

 

Variety reports Feste’s drama follows a young girl who becomes involved with a family grieving the loss of a teenage son. Brosnan and Sarandon will handle the roles of the grieving parents with shooting scheduled to start this summer on the East Coast.

Barbarian Films is lined up to finance the film and serve as the executive producer. The film will be a co-production between Silverwood Films and Brosnan's Irish DreamTime. Silverwood's Lynette Howell and Irish DreamTime's Beau St. Clair are scheduled to produce the movie.

In addition to his role on screen, Brosnan will serve as an executive producer with Doug Dey, Aaron Kaufman, Douglas Kuber and Ron Hartenbaum.

In Variety, St. Clair stated: "What drew us to this piece is Shana's rare ability to uniquely dramatize the complicated dynamics of a family's struggle to stay together as they deal with unforeseen tragedy."

Brosnan will return to the screen with Meryl Streep in Universal's upcoming musical Mamma Mia!, and will return to the title role in MGM’s The Thomas Crown Affair 2. The sequel is being directed by Paul Verhoeven.

Sarandon is on the screen now in the family-friendly Speed Racer, and just finished work on the Peter Jackson-directed film The Lovely Bones.
