Jessica Biel is set to star in an indie project directed by an Australian filmmaker Stephan Elliott. The co-star of Nicolas Cage in "Next" is reported to have nailed the lead cast in "Easy Virtue", a romantic comedy based on Noel Coward's 1924 three-act play.
Reportedly, the girlfriend of multi talented artist Justin Timberlake stars as as Larita Huntington, an American divorcee who travels to the South of France and marries a young wealthy Englishman. She will add to the romantic comedy's cast of Ben Barnes, Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas. In the meantime, the filming will start next week in London.
Biel, who appeared in "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" has recently finished filming "Powder Blue" in which she plays alongside Forest Whitaker and "A Woman of No Importance" with Annette Benning. The 25-year-old actress reached stardom when she was cast as Mary Camden in television family drama series of "7th Heaven".
