The Cannes International Film Festival may be a few days away, but producers and distributors are already announcing projects they plan to sell at the Marche du Film in Cannes this year. One of the first packages up for sale is Maggie’s Plan, which will star Clive Owen, Greta Gerwig and Julianne Moore.
Moore and Gerwig had previously been attached to the project, which was written and directed by Rebecca Miller, reports Variety. Owen officially joined the film on Thursday.
Protagonist Pictures is hoping to sell the international rights in Cannes, while CAA and Cinetic are handling North American sales.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the producers on the project include Miller, Moneyball’s Rachael Horovitz and Damon Cardasis through Round Films and Specialty Films.
