Rachel Weisz to Co-Produce Shape Movie

News   Rachel Weisz to Co-Produce Shape Movie

Press reports suggest that Rachael Weisz, the actress who co-starred in Neil La Bute's hit play The Shape of Things at the Almeida in the summer of 2001, is to have a producing role in the projected film version of the play.

Miss Weisz alternates stage plays (she was particularly striking, back in 1995, in a West End production of Noel Coward's Design For Living) with films - starring in "The Mummy" and its sequel, for example.

To move into production would be a fascinating new stage of her career and a welcome sign of female talent in an area of the industry that is traditionally dominated by men.
