When it comes to playing a widow, Rebecca Hall is your gal! The Golden Globe nominee, who's currently starring as a woman who's been accused of murdering her husband in Broadway's Machinal, will appear as another grieving widow (this one sounds like she's actually grieving, BTW) in the film Tumbledown. Directed by Sean Menshaw, the rom-com will also feature Tony winner Blythe Danner, Joe Manganiello, Jason Sudeikis and Beau Bridges.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tumbledown follows a young widow (Hall) who's unable to move on after the death of her husband, an acclaimed singer and the subject of a biography she's trying to write. She teams with a brash New York academic (Sudeikis) who forces her to confront her loss and the strange circumstances of her husband's death. No word yet on how Danner, Manganiello and Bridges' characters fit into the story.
Written by Desi Van Til, who was an associate producer on 13 Going 30 (yay!), Tumbledown is set to start production in late March in Massachusetts. Before she heads to The Bay State to start filming, you can catch Rebecca Hall in Roundabout's revival of Sophie Treadwell's Machinal, playing at the American Airlines Theatre.
