Jennifer Connelly and Cillian Murphy to Star in CRY/FLY

Jennifer Connelly and Cillian Murphy are set to star in a new drama called Cry/Fly, which is the English-language debut of one of Latin America's female directors and writers, Claudia Llosa. Inglourious Basterds star Melanie Laurent is also in negotiation to co-star in the movie as a French journalist.

The film is set in Minnesota and northern Canada and takes place over two different time periods. It "tells the story of a mother (Connelly) whose six-year-old daughter is terminally ill. A dramatic event separates the mother from her sick daughter and falcon-keeper son, and 20 years later, the son is persuaded by a journalist to embark on a search for his now-famous mother."

It sounds like a heavy movie, and it's got a hell of a good cast. The movie starts shooting in February. What are your thoughts on this one?
