Aaron Paul to team up with Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried for Fathers and Daughters

Jesse Pinkman continues his post Breaking Bad career trajectory!

Aaron Paul is set to co-star with Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried in FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS for director Gabriele Muccino (SEVEN POUNDS), based on the blacklist script by Brad Desch. It's unknown what role Paul would be playing the film, but the speculation is that it would be a love interest for Seyfried, which is ironic as he played her love interest on the HBO show Big Love.

Here's the story breakdown from Variety:

Story follows  a father and daughter living 25 years apart in New York City. Crowe will portray a famous novelist and widower struggling with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year-old daughter. Seyfried will portray the now-grown daughter in present-day Manhattan as she battles the aftermath of her troubled childhood.

Paul also has the upcoming NEED FOR SPEED on the docket, his first big starring gig post Breaking Bad, and is also starring in the drama HELLION as well as Ridley Scott's biblical epic, EXODUS. I like that Paul is taking on notable work and projects befitting his stature rather than jumping into every starring vehicle that's likely coming across his plate. Although I'll miss Jesse Pinkman, I look forward to seeing what Paul brings to the table as he moves on to the next phase of his career and thus far the choices have been varied and interesting. Off to a good start, I think.

FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS is currently in development. NEED FOR SPEED hits theaters on March 14, 2014.
