Naomi Watts in Talks to Star in Errol Morris’ HOLLAND, MICHIGAN; Jennifer Lopez to Star in THE BOY NEXT DOOR; FAST & FURIOUS 7 Adds Nathalie Emmanuel

     September 6, 2013


A bit more casting news today:

Hit the jump for more on both pictures.

nathalie-emmanuelNews of Watts possible addition to Holland, Michigan comes via Deadline, but THR has more details on the thriller’s plot.  Morris’ narrative debut centers on “a woman who suspects her husband is cheating and begins an affair of her own, eventually discovering that her husband is a serial killer.”  Tonally, the picture is being described as Fargo-esque.  Morris’ latest effort, The Unknown Known, recently screened at TIFF; you can read Phil’s review here.  Watts’ Princess Diana picture, Diana, will make its world tour over the next few months.

Variety reports that Lopez will star in The Boy Next Door as “a newly-separated mother who begins an affair with a new teenage neighbor who befriends her son. Trouble ensues, however, when she tries to abruptly end the relationship.”  Cohen is also in talks to direct the picture, scripted by Barbara Curry.  Much like Blum’s recent films, The Boy Next Door will be made on a budget of only a few million dollars when it begins production this fall.  Time will tell if it has the runaway box office success of Blum’s past performers.

Deadline reports that Fast & Furious 7 has added another member of Dom Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) anti-hero team.  Emmanuel is reported as being on the protagonist’s side of things, joining Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson.  Other new character additions Kurt Russell, Tony Jaa, and Ronda Rousey are still up in the air as to which side they’ll land on.
