Uma Thurman has been tapped to star in the upcoming "My Zinc Bed" for HBO.
Uma Thurman has double happiness now that she lands a new TV project and finds new love. The actress has been tapped to star in "My Zinc Bed," which is an HBO adaptation of the play by acclaimed playwright David Hare.
Being in the same scene with her will be Paddy Considine and Jonathan Pryce. On the story, "My Zinc Bed" centers on a young idealist alcoholic (Considine), his wealthy boss (Pryce) and the boss' formerly cocaine addict young wife (Thurman), with whom he has an affair.
Longtime stage and television helmer Anthony Page has been booked to direct with shooting set to take place in London. HBO Films, who will co-produce with the BBC, will broadcast "My Zinc Bed" on the channel in 2008.
Acting aside, Thurman reportedly is back on the dating saddle again. She is said to be dating actor-director-producer David White. While her representative refused to comment on that matter, a source close to the couple said, "They look good together. They are very, very, very happy."
