The movie, written and directed by Peter Hedges, is based on a story by Ahmet Zappa and centres on the life of a childless couple who are unable to conceive. After burying a box of 'wishes' in their garden, they are delighted when they finally welcome a baby-boy but young 'Timothy' is not all that he appears. Shooting is set to begin on 31st January 2011 in Atlanta and Garner where Livingstone will play the lead couple, with DeWitt playing the former's sister.
