Brody to join Haggis' Third Person

Adrien Brody has reportedly signed on to Paul Haggis' upcoming drama Third Person.

The Oscar-winning actor is the latest addition to the ensemble movie alongside Maria Bello, reported Variety.

Like Paul's Oscar-winning 2004 drama Crash, Third Person follows three combining stories set in Paris, New York and Rome, with "each storyline following a different stage of a love relationship from the beginning, middle, and the end."

Liam Neeson is already on board to play a journalist, who embarks on a romance with a gossip columnist (Olivia Wilde) in the New York storyline, while James Franco, Kim Basinger, Mila Kunis and Moran Atias also star.

Adrien's character is to be the love interest of Moran's, although the other characters haven't been disclosed.

Production is scheduled to begin shortly in Rome.

Since winning the best actor Oscar in 2002 for his performance in The Pianist, Adrien has starred in Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited and Fantastic Mr Fox, and played Salvador Dali in Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris.

He recently appeared in drama Detachment alongside Marcia Gay Harden, Lucy Liu and Christina Hendricks, for which he also served as executive producer.
