"Evening" really gets more illumination as one more star is coming down under way. Variety reported that Patrick Wilson has been confirmed to join the cast of the project, a big screen adaptation of Susan Minot's best-selling novel of the same title.
Lining up with the likes of Vanessa Redgrave, Claire Danes, Toni Collette, and Hugh Dancy, Wilson will be billed to play the past object of affection of a 65-year-old cancer patient played by Redgrave as she recalls her youth while her two daughters try to come to terms with her impending death.
Another production of Focus Features, "Evening" is directed by Hungarian filmmaker Lajos Koltai with Michael Cunningham adapting the script alongside Minot. The latter two will also serve as the executive producers apart from Jeff Sharp and John Hart who are producing through their Hart-Sharp Entertainment.
Wilson, also a lauded stage actor, is last seen playing opposite teen star Ellen Page in Lionsgate's thriller "Hard Candy." His next film feature, "Little Children", is scheduled to hit the theaters on October 20 this year.
