After losing Robin Wright Penn and Brittany Robertson, Rodrigo Garcia's Mother and Child is making a comeback. Picking up Annette Bening and Naomi Watts as replacements, the project has recovered its cast.
Naomi Watts and Annette Bening for Mother and Child
Written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, Mother and Child is a multilayered drama that follows a woman who gave up her daughter 35 years ago and an African-American woman who is looking to adopt.
So then who will play the African-American woman? Since both Watts and Bening are a bit too pasty for the gig, Kerry Washington and Shareeka Epps also star.
Mother and Child has been given a production budget of $7 million.
