Starring Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Maria Bello, Adrien Brody, Kim Basinger, and more, it tells the intertwined love stories of three couples in different parts of the world.

Romance and anger collide in 'Third Person' trailer -- VIDEO

Paul Haggis, Oscar-winning writer and director of films like Million Dollar Baby and Crash, sticks with romance in his latest, Third Person.

The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, and Moran Atias, and is set in New York, Rome, and Paris. Everyone is paired off, and everyone is connected — think Love Actually, but dramatic. (Or Crash, minus racism?)

The film doesn’t have a release date for the U.S. yet, but premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the trailer below:

• Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde are set for Third Person, an ensemble drama spanning New York, Paris, and Rome, from Crash writer-director Paul Haggis — who certainly knows from sprawling, intersecting storylines. [Vulture]

• Looks like Alexander Skarsgard won’t have much time to work on his tan during his True Blood hiatus. The actor is in talks to headline the horror flick Hidden, about a family escaping an enigmatic epidemic in a bomb shelter. It will be the feature directing debut for writers Matt and Ross Duffer. [THR]

Geoffrey Rush and Jim Sturgess are entering the world of art auctions in The Best Offer, from Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore (Malèna).  Composing legend Ennio Morricone will score the film. [Variety]
