A Guy Flick
Looking forward to the teaming of Sigourney Weaver and Anthony LaPaglia in the film version of The Guys, Anne Nelson's play about the interaction between two disparate New Yorkers post 9/11/01.
As is often the case with shows that feature revolving casts (Love Letters, The Vagina Monologues, etc.), any alternate combination of the above actors would no doubt highlight different facets of the material. As it turns out, Weaver and LaPaglia have been chosen to appear in a movie version of the play, to be financed and distributed by ContentFilm. The flick will be directed by Weaver's husband, Jim Simpson, who helmed the stage production and who is also artistic director of the Flea; it will be produced by Jason Kliot and Joana Vicente of Open City Films.
