Following the recent casting of Paul Bettany, Deadline brings word that Yellowstone star Kelly Reilly has been tapped to join Tom Hanks and Robin Wright in Sony Pictures and Miramax’s upcoming film adaptation of Here, based on the graphic novel by Richard McGuire. Further details about her character are still being kept under wraps.
The upcoming project marks Reilly’s latest collaboration with director Robert Zemeckis, after previously working together in the Denzel Washington-led film Flight. She will next be seen in the upcoming fifth season of Yellowstone.
Here will be directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future trilogy) from a screenplay he is co-writing with Eric Roth. The film adaptation will be produced by Playtone and ImageMovers.
Set to take place from the past to the distant future, the story will center around a corner of a room and the many people who have inhabited it over the years. Richard McGuire originally published Here as a six-page coming strip in 1957. Over five decades later, the graphic novel version of the story was released in 2014 by Pantheon Books.
This marks Zemeckis, Roth, and Hanks’ latest collaboration since 1994’s Forrest Gump, which earned them individual Oscar Awards, including for Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Zemeckis and Hanks most recently worked together on Disney+’s live-action/CG-animated musical fantasy film Pinocchio.
