A straight-laced pharmacist’s uneventful life spirals out of control when he stars an affair with a trophy wife customer who takes him on a joyride involving sex, drugs and possibly murder.
Rockwell and Wilde are joined by a stellar ensemble, led by the ever-brilliant Michelle Monaghan, Ray Liotta, Jane Fonda, Ben Schwartz, Norbert Leo Butz, and Ken Howard.
Geoff Moore and David Posamentier make their feature debuts as both co-writers and co-directors.
The project has been in the works for a few years, with various casting iterations across its development, previously having Jeremy Renner in Rockwell’s role, Jennifer Garner attached in Wilde’s, and Judi Dench in Fonda’s.
Fast forward a few years, and it was pretty much all change, with Monaghan the only major player who’s role hasn’t changed, and I think it’s all worked out very well, despite a few road bumps along the way. The current cast is exceptional, and we’re very much looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.
Better Living Through Chemistry will be released in cinemas and on VOD on March 14th in the US. Still no word yet on a UK release date, but hopefully Universal will be changing that soon. For now, here’s the first poster, which you can click through to enlarge.
