Goldsman Testing For Tale

February 29, 2012

Director Akiva Goldsman will soon begin testing for the lead roles in his supernatural thriller Winter’s Tale says Heat Vision.

Benjamin Walker and Tom Hiddleston  are among several actors trying out for the male lead next week. The following week Lily Collins Bella Heathcote and Jessica Brown Findlay are all up for the female part.

An adaptation of the 1983 Mark Helprin novel of the same name, follows Peter Lake, an orphaned mechanic who tries to rob a palatial West Side mansion. There he meets a young dying girl who he becomes determined to save. A flying white horse also figures into the story which is set in both 19th Century and contemporary Manhattan.

Russell Crowe will play a gangster boss with Will Smith appearing as a judge. Both men have worked with Goldsman on films before.
