Picking up her next starring role after that in the upcoming Garry Marshall's "Georgia Rule", Felicity Huffman has signed on to topline "The Politician's Wife", a new dramatic project coming from Picturehouse.
An adaptation of the 1995 British miniseries of the same title aired on Channel 4, the project will likely stay true to the original story that centers on an MP's wife who responds to her husband's infidelity in unexpected ways. Nicholas Meyer has already been tapped to pen the script which is described to be filled with "intrigue and sexual politics."
Production on the picture is scheduled to begin in May this year during Huffman's hiatus from ABC's popular TV series "Desperate Housewives." No director attached yet, but it is confirmed that Sara Risher will produce via her ChickFlicks alongside Jerry Leider.
