Posted 02.12.08 by reelz
Renee Zellweger will likely be starring in the comedy, My One and Only, based on the unusual childhood of uber-tan actor George Hamilton, in which his mother went on search of a wealthy man to supprt her and her sons. Charlie Peters (3 Men and a Little Lady) wrote the script. Richard Loncraine (Firewall, Wimbledon) will direct.
Marisa Tomei will star as a stripper opposite Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler, Darren Aronofsky's new drama about an over-the-hill '80s wrestler (Rourke). Tomei was recently seen looking fabulous in Sidney Lumet's Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.
And Patrick Wilson (the hottie dad in Little Children) has signed to star in Barry Munday, a romantic comedy about a philanderer who is named in a paternity suit. The movie is based on the Frank Turner Holton's novel, Life in a Strange Place.
