James McAvoy and Laura Linney finding 'Details'
Director Jacob Estes, who made a splash with his 2004 thriller "Mean Creek," has recruited as stellar cast for his new black comedy "The Details." According to Variety, James McAvoy, Laura Linney, Elizabeth Banks and Anna Friel have all signed on for the independently financed feature.
Also scripted by Estes, the picture centers on a couple played by McAvoy and Banks who find an infestation of raccoons in their back yard. Things get out of hand as they disagree on how to deal with eliminating the animals from destroying their property.
McAvoy, who made a splash in last year's "Wanted," has Michael Hoffman's drama "The Last Station" on his upcoming slate and is voicing a lead character in the CG-animated "Gnomeo and Juliet" with Emily Blunt.
After spending most of last year accepting every award known to man for her role as Abigail Adams in the HBO mini-series "John Adams," Linney returned to film and just finished production on Mark Ruffalo's directorial debut, "Sympathy for Delicious" alongside Orlando Bloom and Juliette Lewis.
Banks, who is a producer on the upcoming Sci-Fi thriller "Surrogates," is considering starring opposite Leslie Mann in the comedy " What Was I Thinking?"
Friel is best known for her work on the recently cancelled "Pushing Daisies," but also appears in "Land of the Lost" early next month.
Production on "Details" should begin this summer in Seattle.
