Golden Globe-nominee Ashley Judd is involved in talks to take part in The Weinstein Company's immigration drama "Crossing Over."
Searching for her next acting vehicle after "Bug", Ashey Judd is reportedly engaged in talks to have a starring role in immigration drama "Crossing Over", which The Weinstein Company is currently setting up at its pit.
If a deal is landed, Judd will likely be billed as an immigration defense attorney who is trying to arrange the adoption of a Nigerian girl. Already included in the cast are Harrison Ford, Ray Liotta, Cliff Curtis, and Sean Penn, who turns out to only make a brief appearance in the movie.
Set in Los Angeles, "Crossing" concerns immigrants from different countries and backgrounds who share a common bond in desperately trying to gain legal status. "Running Scared" helmer Wayne Kramer is onboard to direct from his own script also to produce alongside Frank Marshall and Gregg Taylor.
