Diane Kruger Suzanne Clement Join Richard Gere In Drama Longing

Diane Kruger ("National Treasure", "Inglourious Basterds") and Suzanne Clement ("Laurence Anyways", "I Killed My Mother") have joined the English-language remake of the Israeli movie "Longing". Savi Gabizon, who wrote and directed the original movie, will return to direct. The original movie premiered at the Venice Film Festival and TIFF in 2017.

Richard Gere plays a bachelor who is forced to evaluate his life choices when he discovers that an ex-girlfriend had given birth to his son twenty years ago. Kruger will star as Alice, the favorite teacher of Gere's deceased son, and Clement is set to play the boy's mother, Rachel.

The film is produced by Daniel Bekerman ("The Witch") under the Scythia Films banner along with Current Flow Entertainment's Alexander Vinnitski and Arbitrage Pictures' Neil Mathieson. The Solution Entertainment's Myles Nestel and Lisa Wilson executive produce and handle global sales. Daniel Goldenberg of Goldenberg & Co. serves as production council. The movie is an official treaty co-production between Canada and Israel.

Sight Unseen Pictures' Oren Moverman and Savi Gabizon are on board to executive produce along with Mongrel Media's Hussain Amarshi, United King's Moshe Edery and United Channels Movies' Avraham Pirchi and Chilik Michaeli.

Vinnitski said the following in a statement: "We have been incredibly fortunate to attract such a stellar and multi award-winning cast for this very special and beautiful film, clearly a testament to Savi's screenplay and vision for this English language remake".
