Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl to join Helen Mirren’s “Woman In Gold”

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Weinstein Company has set Ryan Reynolds and is negotiating with Daniel Bruhl to join Helen Mirren in Woman In Gold, a fact-based story that Simon Curtis will direct in May, Deadline reported.

Mirren will play real-life heroine Maria Altmann, a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were pilfered from her family during wartime. Reynolds will play the attorney who took his case despite knowing little about art, and Bruhl will play his adversary.

David Thompson and Kris Thykier are producing, while the executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein for TWC, Christine Langan for BBC and Ed Rubin.

The script was written by Alexi Kay Campbell. The film reunites Harvey Weinstein with Curtis, who most recently directed My Week With Marilyn for TWC. Reynolds just finished Mississippi Grind for directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and he is the lead of Atom Egoyan’s The Captive and in the Tarsem-directed Selfless, the latter for Focus Features. Bruhl is coming off Rush and most recently wrapped the Anton Corbjin-directed A Most Wanted Man.
