Now I Lay Me Down
The always great Catherine Zeta-Jones is in talks to join the Stephen Frears-directed comedy-drama "Lay The Favorite" reports Deadline.
Based on Beth Raymer bestselling memoir , the story charts her rise from lowly Vegas cocktail waitress to one of the top sports gambling bookmakers.
Rebecca Hall has been cast in the lead role.
Zeta-Jones would play the wife of Raymer's mentor, a cantankerous ex–New York bookmaker (Bruce Willis).
D.V. DeVincentis (”High Fidelity,” “Grosse Pointe Blank”) wrote the adapted script
Filming aims to kick off in New Orleans in April.
