Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Patrick Stewart will be taking on the role of Tobi in Match, a movie adaptation of Stephen Belber‘s play of the same name.
Written by Belber, Match will also feature Broadway vet Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard.
In Match, Tobi, a “reclusive and eccentric” former choreographer and Julliard dance instructor, is visited by Mike (Lillard) and Lisa (Gugino), a couple from Seattle. Tobi believes that the pair is interviewing him for Lisa’s thesis on the New York dance movement of the ’60s, but they are there for another reason and Tobi must “face the impact of decisions he made in his past.”
A release date for Match has not been announced yet.
