It has been reported that Patrick Stewart (X-Men), Carla Gugino (Sin City) and Matthew Lillard (Scooby Doo) are set to join forces, for the big screen adaptation of the hit play Match. Carla and Matthew will play the couple Lisa and Mike, while Patrick will play the reclusive dance instructor Tobi.
The synopsis for Match is as follows:
Match is an adaptation of the 2004 Tony-nominated play about a veteran dance instructor (Stewart) whose past comes back to haunt him when a couple (Gugino and Lillard) arrive at his home under the false pretence of an interview for the wife’s thesis.
Match will star Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard and is set to begin production in New York. Match will be directed by Stephen Belber based on the screenplay that he adapted from his own play. Meanwhile, David Permut, Rick Rosenthal and Matt Ratner will produce the film, which is expected to be released some time next year.
