'Dark Knight' Beauty Maggie Gyllenhaal Steps In Toni Collette's Role


The actress who is soon to be seen starring in the highly anticipated Batman film has been signed to replace the 'Little Miss Sunshine' actress in 'Farlanders'.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, the actress that took over Katie Holmes's Rachel Dawes character in "The Dark Knight", is going to get another replacing role. This time, the two-time Golden Globe-nominated actress will step in for Toni Collette in the developed Sam Mendes' project, "Farlanders".

The sister of actor Jake Gyllenhaal fills in Collette's role since the latter actress quit the project following the shooting delays. In the Focus Features' tidbit, she will be portraying a bohemian college professor who happens to be the friend of John Krasinski's character. Additionally, the 30-year-old actress will join the production some time next week.

Directed by Mendes, the "Road to Perdition" helmer, "Farlanders" follows the story of a young couple who travel across the country to find the perfect place to raise up their family. The film scripted by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida has started filming in April 2008 in Wilton, Connecticut. Featuring also Maya Rudolph, Allison Janney and Cheryl Hines, it is expected to come out in 2009.
