Jennifer Garner is in talks to star opposite Jeremy Renner in “Better Living Through Chemistry,” a dramatic thriller from Occupant Films.
“Chemistry” centers on a small-town pharmacist (Renner) who is stuck in a loveless marriage and rediscovers himself through an affair with a trophy wife (Garner) who introduces him to the pleasures of prescription drugs. Things spin out of control when the affair escalates and the lovers begin plotting to kill the woman’s husband.
Geoff Moore and David Posamentier, better known as scribes, are making their directorial debut with the picture.
Occupant is behind “Peep World,” the black comedy with Michael C. Hall, Rainn Wilson and Sarah Silverman that screens Wednesday night at the Toronto International Film Festival.
