‘Lovely Bones’ Entice Weisz

weisz.gifPeter Jackson’s next movie, The Lovely Bones, has found a lead in Rachel Weisz.  The movie is an adaption of the Alice Sebold novel and Variety reports that “Weisz will play the mother of a young girl who is abducted and is feared to have been murdered.”

In the book, a 14-yr old girl, who is raped and murdered, is in Heaven watching how her death has effected those people in her life, she also narrates the story.  The book sounds good, but Jackson had a hard time getting a company to pick up the script when he was shopping it around.  Dreamworks finally snatched it up and production is set to begin  in October.  As of now, there is no other casting being reported.
