The film, produced by JJ Abrams, is the directorial debut of writer Maya Forbes.
Abrams seems to be clutching his hands around several incredibly ambitious projects at the same time; his brand new “Super 8” will be followed by Morning Glory, Men Making Music, Mission impossible IV and a Star Trek sequel, project for which Saldana is also optioned for.
The story of “Infinitely Polar Bear,” follows a bipolar husband and father—played by Mark Ruffalo, who stops taking his medication, and consequently loses his mind, then his job, and then his marriage to Saldana, who, after re-embracing the working-force work, moves out of the house, leaving Ruffalo alone with the kids.
Writer Maya Forbes (Monsters vs. Aliens) wrote the feature, and will also direct it.
