This casting rumor comes only a few days after the news of Keira Knightley’s deal to join the cast surfaced.
The story will follow Will Smith’s character, a New York advertising executive, who suffers a huge personal tragedy.
As his life quickly starts going in directions he never thought it would, his is colleagues start worrying about him, and finally decide to pull off a truly unorthodox plan to help him out.
The plan slightly backfires, but it also works in some unexpected ways. Knightley, one of the most famous British and Hollywood actresses in the world, is making a deal to play the living embodiment of Love, in a display of Love, Time, and Death. Role rumors about Winslet’s work on the project have yet to surface.
The rest of the cast, so far, includes the likes of Helen Mirren, Michael Pena, Edward Norton, and Naomie Harris. The movie is set to see the light of day on December 2016, the same day as Rogue One: A Star Wars Trilogy. Will the date be changed, remains to be seen.
