Zoe Saldana and Mark Ruffalo are Infinitely Polar Bear for producer J.J. Abrams

Now that J.J. Abrams has officially solidified his standing as Hollywod and TV’s golden boy (well, except for ‘Undercovers’…yikes), everything the Abramator touches receives special attention. Next up for the writer/producer/director is the drama INFINITELY POLAR BEAR, which he will be producing. The film is about a man suffering from bi-polar disorder who decides to go off his medications, only to lose his job and his family while his life spirals out of control. The underrated Mark Ruffalo will be playing the father while Zoe Saldana will be playing his wife.
The script was written by Maya Forbes (MONSTERS VS. ALIENS), who will also be making her directorial debut. The brief film description sounds like a heavy-handed drama that will provide Ruffalo with a great opportunity to showcase his acting chops. I’m not sure he and Saldana make the best couple, but I’m sure it will work better onscreen.
