Nora Arnezeder Is Ryan Reynolds’ Girlfriend in SAFE HOUSE; Producers Want to Approach Jeff Bridges Next

French actress Nora Arnezeder (Paris 36) is in talks to play Ryan Reynolds’ love interest in Safe House, which also stars Denzel Washington and Tim McGraw.  Reynolds plays a CIA agent who must transport a dangerous criminal (Washington) to safety.  David Guggenheim’s script landed on the 2010 Black List (a collection of Hollywood’s finest unproduced screenplays), but Terry George (Reservation Road) is currently working on a rewrite.  Daniel Espinoza (Snabba Cash) will direct.

This is where the news gets a little more dubious.  Latino Review hears that the producers want to approach Jeff Bridges to play Deputy Vice Director Harland Whitford.  It’s worded carefully enough to be rendered virtually meaningless.  I mean, I want to approach Jeff Bridges to play Executive Comptroller Basil Kasinski in my movie, but it’s a long shot.  Still, the producers of Safe House have more sway than I do, and Bridges would obviously be a fantastic addition to an already great cast.

Arnezeder is apparently becoming quite famous in her native France after an award-winning turn in Paris 36, which showed off her lovely singing voice.  Hit the jump to watch Arnezeder record a cover of “Singin’ in the Rain” in studio.

Well, I’m charmed.  Safe House is scheduled for release on February 10, 2012.
