They have not been seen on the big screen together since 1996 film The Juror but it looks like Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore are ready to team up again, with them officially signed up for upcoming independently funded drama Blind. The pair will also be joined by Renée Willett (Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!) and Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story, Stalker).
The film tells the story of a novelist (Baldwin) who was blinded in a car crash that also resulted in the death of his wife. After a slow recovery and a few years have passed, he starts to discover some of his previous lust for life and embarks on an affair with Moore's character. However, his new lover turns out to be the neglected wife of a powerful businessman (McDermott) who is being investigated for questionable financial dealings.
Producer-turned-director Michael Mailer, best known for his work The Ledge, starring Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard, and Empire, featuring John Leguizamo and Denise Richards, is set to helm the picture while his brother, John Buffalo Mailer, penned the script. Diane Fisher, Jennifer Gelfer and Pamela Thur are producing.
"Blind has been a long gestating project," Mailer confessed to Deadline. "But to have the superb cast that I have, my brother as the writer, and a very talented group of producers surrounding me I can say with true conviction it was worth the wait."
Having just started production, it will undoubtedly be a while until Blind reaches cinemas. Before then, Baldwin will work on a number of projects, including comedy Drunk Parents with Salma Hayek, animation Boss Baby opposite Kevin Spacey, and Downsizing, a light-hearted drama co-starring Reese Witherspoon, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Sudeikis and Matt Damon. Moore will next be seen alongside Jessica Lange and Billy Connolly in action comedy Wild Oats.
