The Only Living Boy in New York adds Kate Beckinsale to it’s cast in a leading role

The Amazon original movie will also star Callum Turner, Kiersey Clemons, and Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges. Turner will play the young protagonist who discovers his father is having an affair only to find himself drawn to the woman, whom will be played by Beckinsale, in question.

Marc Webb will direct the film fresh off his work on both installments of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise:

Originally scripted by Allan Loeb, The Only Living Boy in New York has since been rewritten alongside Webb. The story follows a boy (Turner) who, after learning that his father is having an affair, winds up becoming romantically involved with the woman in question. Beckinsale will play the woman with Bridges in the father role.

Beckinsale starred earlier this year in Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship and can be seen in theaters now headlining D.J. Caruso’s The Disappointments Room. Early next year, she’ll reprise her Selene role for Screen Gems’ Underworld: Blood Wars. Anna Foerster is directing the franchise entry, set to hit theaters January 6.

Although there’s no specific word on how the title relates to the plot, The Only Living Boy in New York is a reference to a 1970 Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel track of their last studio album together, “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”
