They have both been spending time on the small screen for acting jobs, but now news arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon) and Michelle Monaghan (Source Code) are headed back to the cinema for director Peter Glanz' (The Longest Week) latest The Price Of Admission.
Pitched as a Charlie Kaufman-esque story of creativity warring with reality and a man at the end of his tether, the film will see Sheen as playwright Harold Sugar, who is dealing with a mid-life crisis. His work is suffering – not that it was ever amazing to begin with – and the strain is also taking its toll on his wife, Eliza (Monaghan). She is sick of taking a back seat to his work and wants to start a family, but he dives headfirst into an autobiographical play. As the lines between fiction and fact start to blur, he begins to lose his grip on sanity.
Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea), who is actually attached to star in another project Glanz has been developing, will produce this one.
Sheen will be seen in new drama Home Again and School Of Rock (2003) writer Mike White's comedy Brad's Status. Monaghan, in addition to her work on Hulu drama The Path, will appear in romantic drama Sidney Hall.
