Husband-and-wife duo Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are collaborating in a movie for the first time in two decades.

The movie titled "Connescence" and hails from filmmaker Michael J. Weithorn.

Principal photography kicked off this week on the movie.

The pic is from Victoria Hill and Greg Clark‘s Fibonacci Films.

Bacon and Sedgwick playing the leads, joined by White Lotus star Brittany O’Grady and Judd Hirsch.

Bacon plays Stan Olszewski, a sharp, funny, but chronically underachieving security guard, who breaks up an attempted robbery at the home of Cynthia Rand (Sedgwick), a successful urologist married to brilliant former Watergate prosecutor Warren Rand (Judd Hirsch).

From this chance encounter grows a charged and dynamic friendship – first as late-night text sessions filled with humor and intimate revelations – turning into something that shakes the foundation of  their lives.

Bacon and Sedgwick, who married in 1988 and have two children including actor Sosie Bacon, haven’t acted together since 2004, during which they starred in both "Cavedweller" and "The Woodsman". 

Bacon has since directed Sedgwick in "Loverboy" and Sedgwick directed Bacon in "Space Oddity".

“We are so excited to work together on screen again for the first time in 20 years in such a funny, moving and original script," Sedgwick and Bacon said in a statement.

Filming will continue for 22 days in and around Brooklyn. Hill is producing with Sedgwick, Bacon and Andrew Mann. Laura D’Augello is co-producer. Director of photography is Andrew Wonder, production designer is Michael Fitzgerald with costume designer Gina Ruiz, and casting directors are Jen Euston and Allison Jones.
