Jessica Biel Highlighting New Crime Flick Die a Little


Jessica Biel


The beauty is set to topline as well as produce the movie via her Iron Ocean shingle.

Opted to ditch Wonder Woman role in "Justice League of America", Jessica Biel turned out to go for a more humane part in her next move. According to Variety, the actress is now poised to topline a crime thriller titled "Die a Little" which United Artists is developing.

Pic is an adaptation of Megan Abbott's novel of the same name that explores how the lives of a schoolteacher and her LAPD detective brother are turned upside down by a mysterious woman. Unlike the original material, however, it will be set in the present day instead of the 1954 Los Angeles set depicted in the book.

Apart from starring, Biel will also perform producing duties alongside her partner at Iron Ocean Michelle Purple and Richard Gladstein of FilmColony. No director attached yet so far, but Marcia and Geoffrey Blake, who originally pitched the book-based project, have been confirmed to pen the screenplay.
