Tilda Swinton has been attached to star in Erick Zonka's "Julia."
One more acting stint is on the way for Tilda Swinton to undertake. The British actress has signed up a deal to have a leading role in "Julia", a big screen project which will be the English-language directorial debut of French filmmaker Erick Zonka.
Inspired by John Cassavetes' 1980 film entitled "Gloria", pic is intended to be a tension-filled road movie that centers on a woman who gets involved in big trouble as she tries to extort money using a young boy as a bait. Production is expected to begin by late October this year using locations around Los Angeles and Mexico with Zonka also penning the script.

Her recent credits include "Stephanie Daley", "Michael Clayton", plus "Phantasmagoria - The Visions of Lewis Carroll", an ambitious film project of Marilyn Manson.
