Jennifer Connelly will star will real-life husband Paul Bettany in the adaptation of Philip Roth's novel AMERICAN PASTORAL. The two will play a successful couple (he an athlete, she Miss New Jersey) who marry and eventually are torn asunder by the actions of his daughter, played by Evan Rachel Wood (THIRTEEN). When the daughter, an anti-war activist, blows up a post office and accidentally kills a doctor, she goes into hiding and the couple are tortured not knowing how their daughter is or even if she is alive. All three actors were possible candidates for Academy Award nominations - Connelly for HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG, Bettany for MASTER AND COMMANDER and Wood for THIRTEEN - but all three fell short. PASTORAL will be the second adaptation of a Philip Roth novel in recent memory with THE HUMAN STAIN opening to a disappointing reception. Philip Noyce (THE QUIET AMERICAN) will direct the film from a script by John Romano. Connelly will next film the horror flick DARK WATER for Disney and Bettany has WIMBLEDON with Kirsten Dunst set for release later this year.
