Amanda Seyfried is slated to play Russell Crowe's daughter.
According to Deadline, the Les Misérables actress has signed on to join Crowe in the drama Fathers and Daughters, which delves into the bond between a father and daughter living in NYC.
Seyfried's character, Katie, reflects back on her relationship with her father, Jake Davis (Crowe), when she was five years old.
Crowe's character, a widowed novelist, grapples with mental illness, which made Katie's childhood a traumatic, decisive experience and haunts her as she reflects upon it 25 years later.
