Rebecca Hall May Star in Richard Linklater's Liars
09.19.09 by BJSprecher
Actress Rebecca Hall first gained wide recognition for her role in the The Prestige as the spurned wife of Christian Bale's magician, but it was her performance in Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona as the adventurous Vicky that earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress.
Thanks to Vicky, Hall is in high demand. She's starred in two features, has completed filming a third, and is currently filming Ben Affleck's The Town. Now, Hall is in talks to star in Richard Linklater's (Slackers, A Scanner Darkly) latest movie, Liars, about a woman who is dumped by her fiancé the night before Barack Obama's presidential election victory. The relationship crisis motivates her to take a road trip to Obama's inauguration with a gal-pal (played by Kat Dennings), stopping along the way to reclaim personal items she left with ex-boyfriends..
