Billy Crudup, Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin join The Convincer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Billy Crudup, Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin have signed on to the drama THE CONVINCER. The film is about a struggling salesman that comes across a rare violin. Jill Sprecher will direct the independent film from a script she wrote with Karen Sprecher. Shooting starts next week. It’s being dubbed a “crime drama”, but unless the salesman stole the violin, I’m not sure that’s an accurate description.
Billy Crudup and Greg Kinnear are two actors that I’ve always really liked, but I thought never lived up to their potential. Much like his costar Kate Hudson, Crudup has never been able to match his performance in ALMOST FAMOUS . A story about a rare violin probably isn’t going to help their cause any.
