Ethan Hawke always has been an actor who chooses his projects carefully--when he chooses a role, you know he is invested in it. For his next project, Hawke will play a violinist in the orchestral-themed romance drama "A Late Quartet."

According to Variety, the story follows the members of a string quartet who have performed together for 25 years and have to adjust to one of them retiring due to Parkinson's disease.

Hawke will portray the second violinist whose desire for more solos leads him to have an affair with his jogging partner, leaving him remorseful and saddened by the state of his marriage.

Yaron Zilberman's directing from a script he co-wrote with Seth Grossman.

Hawke has been one of my favorite actors for some time and the fact that he's working on this project is enough for me to be interested. The story sounds unique and in a world full of reboots and sequels, something fresh is a positive thing.

Hawke recently directed the Off Broadway play "A Lie of the Mind" for the New Group and just wrapped production on "The Woman in the Fifth."
