Opening in limited release later this month, RUBY SPARKS is an off-beat romantic comedy focused on a formerly successful young novelist whose career is sidelined by a bad case of writer’s block until he creates a fetching new character who suddenly comes to life. Written by ZOE KAZAN (who also stars) and directed by JONATHAN DAYTON and VALERIE FARIS, the cast also features PAUL DANO, ANTONIO BANDERAS, ANNETTE BENING, STEVE COOGAN, CHRIS MESSINA, WALLACE LANGHAM and ELLIOTT GOULD.
A labor of love for KAZAN and DANO (who have been a real-life couple for over ten years), the film’s cast would be impressive even for a project with several times the budget of RUBY SPARKS. During our recent interview, DANO talked about the talent in the movie and how elated they were to hear that ANNETTE BENING had signed on. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
