Actress Jennifer Garner is away on "Sabbatical," an erotic thriller which she along with LivePlanet's Sean Bailey, and Chuck Weinstock have sold to Touchstone Pictures. The film actually is based on an idea by Weinstock.
It tells a couple that hits the doldrums in their seventh year of marriage. To inject some life into their union, they decide to take a two-week sabbatical from each other during which, within a set of rules, they can do whatever they want. When the wife returns to the agreed-upon meeting place two weeks later, however, she discovers that her husband has disappeared.
Will produce "Sabbatical" is Garner, Bailey and Weinstock, while Juliana Janes, Garner's partner at Vandalia, will produce in some capacity. In the meantime, the name of the writer will soon be announced.
