Farmiga and Strong take To The Moon

Vera Farmiga is set to star with Mark Strong in period drama Closer To The Moon.

British actor Mark is being cast as Max Rosenthal, the former head of the criminal investigation unit in the Bucharest police force who gets arrested following a bank robbery, with the Up In The Air star tipped to play his former lover and mother of his child, who returns to watch the drama unfold.

Romanian filmmaker Nae Caranfil is directing the film, set in communist Romania, with production scheduled to begin in Bucharest in the autumn, reported Deadline.

Oscar nominee Vera - who most recently starred in sci-fi thriller Source Code and dark comedy Henry's Crime - has been busy preparing for the forthcoming release of her directorial debut Higher Ground.

Her next big-screen outing is in Safe House opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.
