Tahir Rahim, who gained international prominence for his role in 'The Mauritanian', will star alongside actresses Anne Hathaway, Joanna Kulig, among others.
French-Algerian actor Tahar Rahim is set to star in She Came to Me, a romantic comedy written by screenwriter and director Rebecca Miller.
BAFTA nominee Tahar Rahim (The Mauritanian, The Serpent) will star alongside Oscar winners Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) and Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny), Joanna Kulig (Cold War) and Matthew Broderick (Manchester by the Sea).
The film will be presented to international buyers by Protagonist Pictures at the Cannes Film Market later this month, and CAA Media Finance is handling North American rights.
She Came to Me is a multi-generational story set against the backdrop of New York: A composer suffering from writer’s block rediscovers his passion after an adventurous one-night stand, a couple of gifted teenagers fight to prove to the parents that their young love is something that can last forever, and for the woman who seemingly has it all — love arrives in the most unexpected places.
It is not yet known what role Rahim will take on in the forthcoming film.
Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler are producing alongside Miller and Damon Cardasis from Round Films, with principal photography on the film is set to commence this fall in New York.
The producers said in a joint statement: “After an incredibly difficult period in the world, we couldn’t be more excited to be producing Rebecca’s next film. Rebecca has created a hilarious, timely and uplifting New York story and we are thrilled to have such a uniquely talented cast join us on our journey.”
Tahar Rahim was also nominated in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category at the 2021 Golden Globes for The Mauritanian.
