"A Ghost Story"
Texas-based writer/director David Lowery reunites with his Ain’t Them Bodies Saints stars Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara for A Ghost Story, a metaphysical, time-shifting examination of one couple's complicated relationship as seen through the eyes of Affleck’s late husband. Mara stars as Affleck’s wife, who is not aware he has returned from the grave to watch over her and the future occupants of the Texas home they shared. A Ghost Story features Affleck’s dead musician covered in a sheet and a scene that requires Mara to eat an entire vegan chocolate pie as part of her grieving process. David Lowery directed Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and last year’s remake of Disney's Pete’s Dragon, and co-wrote Pit Stop with Austin-based director Yen Tan. Lowery’s next film, 2018's The Old Man and the Gun, stars Robert Redford, Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek. He is also attached to direct a live-action version of Peter Pan for Disney.
