Rebecca Hall and Guy Pearce to Star in Shadow Dancer?
11.09.10 by REELZ
Rebecca Hall, last seen as Ben Affleck's love interest in The Town, is in talks to star as the lead in Shadow Dancer, an adaptation of Tom Bradby's 1999 novel about a former female IRA terrorist who turns informer for MI5. Guy Pearce is also reported to have a role in the film, directed by James Marsh, whose Man on Wire won the Academy Award for Best Documentary.
While we're happy to see Rebecca Hall in more movies (or really anywhere for that matter), we're wondering about the wisdom of adapting a fairly obscure, 11 year-old novel about a conflict that's thankfully been out of the headlines for even longer.
