Mila Kunis and James Franco Join ‘Third Person’
Fresh off the worldwide commercial success that is Ted ($350 million at last count), Mila Kunis is in negotiations to star in Paul Haggis’ Third Person. She will be joined with her forthcoming co-star of Oz: The Great and Powerful, James Franco. Also set to join the cast are, Liam Neeson, Casey Affleck, and Olivia Wilde.

Third Person, which was also written by Haggis, follows three intersecting love stories of three couples residing in Paris, Rome and New York, respectively. Kunis and Franco will play an estranged New York couple, Affleck and Moran Atias (who starred in Haggis’ The Next Three Days) will be a couple on an Italian road trip, and Neeson and Wilde (who likewise both worked on The Next Three Days) will be writers living in the City of Lights.

"The stories look at the beginning, middle and end of a relationship. The couple in Italy represents the beginning, Paris the middle and New York the end," Haggis said.

"These are complex characters in a challenging story; I'm humbled that so many talented people have placed their faith in me," he continued.

Haggis received two Oscars for 2004’s Crash, one for Best Original Screenplay, and one for Best Picture (which he shared with fellow producer Cathy Schulman). He was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for Million Dollar Baby, the previous year.

Third Person is slated to commence shooting on October 17th in Rome.
