Rachel Weisz Cares About "Luna"



Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz is set to be the leadstar in Deepa Mehta's based-on-a-true-story eco drama "Luna."

Keeps working on serious roles, Rachel Weisz reportedly has given her agreement to topline eco drama "Luna" that Deepa Mehta is set to direct for Baldwin Entertainment Group.

Inspired by a true life account of an American environmentalist named Julia Hill, the picture will depict the story of the woman, to be played by Weisz, when she came up to a resolution to live in a 1000-year-old redwood tree for 738 days in order to prevent loggers from cutting it down. Hill ultimately forced the lumber company to not only save the ancient tree, which she called "Luna", but also all trees in her area.

Assigned to pen the script is Oscar-winning scribe David S. Ward with Howard and Karen Elise Baldwin serving as producers. It is further reported that Bollywood actor John Abraham will also take part in the project portraying a fellow environmentalist whose cultural origin, as Mehta told the Times of India newspaper, is "not specified" in the story.
