Clay Achin': Couple Forge 'Born' Identity
Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany will star in Clive Barker-scripted thriller
According to Variety, the plot of the film revolves around a claymation artist (Bettany) and his wife. Their perfect life in a small English town gets shattered when his creations begin to come to life, which is just never a good thing.
Daniel Simpson will direct from a script he wrote with Paul Kaye and horror icon Clive Barker. In addition to co-writing, Barker will also executive produce.
The film will be live action with stop-motion sequences courtesy of Chiodo Bros. Prods.
Shooting will begin in August in the United Kingdom.
Connelly, an Oscar winner for "A Beautiful Mind," and Bettany have been married since 2003.
She was most recently seen in "Little Children" and "Blood Diamond," with "Reservation Road" on tap for this fall. He appeared last year in "Firewall" and "The Da Vinci Code" and will next appear in "Inkheart."
