Rachel Weisz Digs the "Bones" Out


Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz has landed a starring role in Peter Jackson's drama "The Lovely Bones."


Being selective in choosing stints for her acting resume, Rachel Weisz again takes dramatic turn in her next step as the lovely actress has signed on to star in Peter Jackson-directed "The Lovely Bones" which DreamWorks Pictures recently picked up to have it developed at its pit.

Pic is an adaptation of Alice Sebold's 2002 best-selling novel of the same name about a murdered fourteen-year old teen named Susie Salmon who continues to observe her family and friends from a personalized heaven after her death. Weisz reportedly will play the girl's mother, depicted in the book as a woman whose growing family frustrated her youthful dreams.

Filming on the movie is scheduled to start this October in Pennsylvania and New Zealand with Jackson helming from the script he wrote alongside his "Lord of the Rings" scripting partners Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh. Jackson and Walsh will also serve as producers, accompanied by Carolynne Cunningham and Aimee Peyronnet while Tessa Ross, Ken Kamins, and Jim Wilson are all set to executive produce.
