In The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby

Variety is reporting that James McAvoy will star opposite Jessica Chastain in Myriad Pictures’ double-feature film project “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her.”

Myriad had announced the two-film project in February, prior to the Berlin market, with Chastain and Joel Edgerton signed on to star in a love story that explores a New York City couple’s relationship during a difficult time in their marriage from the perspectives of the restaurant-owner husband and of the wife, who goes back to college.

Each film will be a stand-alone movie. Cassandra Kulukundis is producing. Myriad Pictures is pre-selling “Eleanor Rigby” in Cannes this week.
