Catherine Zeta Jones is set to star alongside Bruce Willis in new gambling movie
Welsh actress Catherine could be starring alongside action veteran Bruce in Stephen Frears’ new movie, an adaptation of Beth Raymer’s gambling memoir, The Lay Favourite, reports Deadline.
Catherine will portray the wife of the iconic gambler, played by Bruce. The movie is also set to star The Town actress Rebecca Hall.
The Lay Favourite is a comedy drama, based on Raymer’s memoir, telling the story of a woman who becomes embroiled with a group of older men that have devised a savvy method of gambling that enables them to work the Las Vegas sportsbook system to its full extent, with a more than profitable outcome.
Catherine’s last film was The Rebound, in which she played Sandy, a single mum who falls for her handsome young neighbour. Filming for The Lay Favourite will be starting in New Orleans in April 2011.
