Diane Keaton, Ed Harris have that “Look of Love”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: What would happen if you ran into a man who looked exactly like your late husband? Would you be attracted to this stranger? Could you possibly fall in love?

These are the burning questions that will fuel Arie Posin’s “The Look of Love,” which will star Diane Keaton as the widow and Ed Harris as the man bearing a striking resemblance to Keaton’s character’s deceased spouse.

Exclusive Films recently announced that the company has acquired all international sales rights to Posin’s romantic comedy drama (according to ComingSoon), and will distribute it later this year. Posin, who directed 2005’s “The Chumscrubber” with Jamie Bell and Glenn Close), will write and direct “Love.”

“This movie is about the hope that love can strike at any age, and that it’s possible to love deeply, lose terribly, and still love again. This project will rely heavily on the humanity and honesty of its actors, and I cannot imagine two finer actors in the world than Diane and Ed to entrust with the telling of this story,” Posin said.

“We were immediately attracted to the highly emotional screenplay Arie has written. Combined with the award-winning cast he has assembled ‘The Look of Love’ will surely affect cinema audiences worldwide,” says Alex Walton, EFI’s President of International Sales and Distribution, and Alex Brunner, EFI’s Co-President.

Exclusive Films International plans to unveil the film to foreign buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, according to THR. Other Exclusive titles being sold in Berlin, as reported by THR, include James Watkins’ “The Woman in Black,” starring Daniel Radcliffe; George Clooney’s “The Ides of March,” with Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood; Tom Vaughan’s action comedy “So Undercover,” starring Miley Cyrus; and Martin Scorsese’s Untitled George Harrison Documentary.
