Here’s today’s latest casting news:

Hit the jump for more on each project.

the-silent-wife-book-coverFirst up from Deadline is news that Kidman will star in and produce The Silent Wife.  Here’s the book’s synopsis (via Amazon):

Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds. She likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps. She has nothing left to lose.

Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife went on to become a literary sensation, but the author sadly passed away before realizing this success.

Also from Deadline is news that Sedgwick and Thorne will play the mother-and-daughter pairing of Dee and Hazel in Grau’s thriller.  The story finds them “on their way to a desert facility to help the teen deal with her paralyzing agoraphobia, [when] the two find themselves attacked by gunmen and Hazel has to fight her own demons for the duo to survive.”  Frank Grillo (The Grey) and Aaron Tveit (Les Miserables) also star.

From Latino Review comes word that Peña will join Mamet’s latest thriller.  Blanchett stars as “a grieving granddaughter of a famous special effects artist in Hollywood who discovers secrets from her grandfather’s past that put her life in danger.”  Catherine Keener (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) also stars.
