Oscar winner Rachel Weisz to join “Idol’s Eye” gangster drama

PanARMENIAN.Net - Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz is in negotiations to join Robert Pattinson and Robert De Niro for Olivier Assayas’ sprawling Chicago-set gangster drama “Idol’s Eye,” which is due to start shooting in the fall, Variety reported.

Charles Gillibert at Paris-based CG Cinema is lead-producing the film with American partners Benaroya Pictures, which is financing and producing, as well as Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber, Film 360’s Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Michael Benaroya. Ben Sachs is exec producing for Benaroya Pictures.

Previously titled “Hubris,” the project is based on a 2007 Playboy article called “Boosting The Big Tuna” by Hillel Levin. It follows a group of thieves who rob a man who turns out to be Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo.

Script is penned by Assayas, who won a Golden Globe for “Carlos the Jackal,” his mini-series starring Edgar Ramirez as Venezuelan revolutionary Ilich Ramirez Sanchez.
