Tatiana Maslany in Talks to Join Ryan and Helen Mirren in ‘Woman in Gold’

Tatiana Maslany is in negotiations to join the cast of The Weinstein Co. and BBC’s The Woman in Gold.

Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds will star in the true story of a Holocaust survivor’s (Mirren) crusade to get back her long-lost family heirlooms including Gustav Klimt paintings from the Austrian government 60 years after Nazi soldiers stole them from her home. Reynolds will play the attorney who took her case.

Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn) will direct the film, which begins shooting later this month.

Maslany became a breakout thanks to her chameleon-like role on BBC America’s Orphan Black. So it comes as no surprise that parent company BBC, which is co-financing the film, would enlist Maslany to co-star in Woman in Gold.

Maslany will play a young Mirren in the flashback scenes.

David Thompson and Kris Thykier are producing, while the Harvey and Bob Weinstein are executive producing alongside Ed Rubin and BBC’s Christine Langan. Alexi Kay Campbell wrote the screenplay. Worldview Entertainment, which recently signed a five-year multi-picture partnership with TWC, is co-financing the film.

Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl Tapped For ‘Woman In Gold’

Ryan Reynolds (pictured above) and Daniel Bruhl have come on board to play attorneys in “The Woman in Gold” opposite Helen Mirren for The Weinstein Co.

Simon Curtis (“My Week with Marilyn”) will direct from a script by Alexi Campbell. Production is expected to start in May.

Mirren will play Maria Altmann, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Austria who was able to reclaim five family-owned paintings by the artist Gustav Klimt that were stolen by the Nazis. Reynolds will play the attorney who took his case despite knowing little about art and Bruhl will play his adversary.

Altmann became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1945. She filed suit in federal court in 2000 to recover the paintings and received a favorable ruling U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2004 that Austria was not immune from a suit.

In 2006, an arbitration panel of three Austrian judges found that Austria was legally required to return the art to Altmann and the other family heirs. Altmann died in 2011.

Reynolds is starring in Focus’ sci-fier “Selfless” and recently finished “Mississippi Grind.” Bruhl was seen in “Rush” and “The Fifth Estate” and will be seen in “A Most Wanted Man.”

Reynolds and Bruhl are both repped by WME.

Analeigh Tipton Joins Ryan Reynolds, Sienna Miller in ‘Mississippi Grind’

Analeigh Tipton has been confirmed to be the newest cast member to join “Mississippi Grind”.

Fresh off working with Scarlett Johansson on Luc Besson’s action movie “Lucy,” Analeigh Tipton has signed on to join Ryan Reynolds in Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden’s drama “Mississippi Grind,” TheWrap has learned.

Fleck and Boden will direct from their own original screenplay. The filmmakers previously collaborated on the critically acclaimed dramas “Half Nelson” and “Sugar,” as well as “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.”

Reynolds stars as Curtis, a charismatic drifter who sets off with a down-on-his-luck poker player named Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) on a road trip through the South, where the duo plan to win back what they’ve already lost.

Sienna Miller and Alfre Woodard co-star in the film, which will find Tipton playing Miller’s friend and roommate Vanessa, who Curtis and Gerry meet along their travels.

Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell are producing through their Electric City Entertainment banner along with Tom Rice and Ben Nearn of Sycamore Entertainment, which is financing the project.

Production will take place in New Orleans, and WME Global is handling domestic rights.

Ryan Reynolds’ Big Chance – “Mississippi Grind”

For all of his undeniable charm, infectious playfulness on screen, good looks and star quality, Ryan Reynolds has always struggled to find critical acclaim. It’s not that too many critics necessarily thing Reynolds does poor work in his films, or even that all of these films are bad. It’s simply that Reynolds doesn’t seem to have found his breakthrough role yet – the one that takes him from Van Wilder aftermath to big time leading man, and perhaps awards consideration.

Some are speculating that this project may finally be in Reynolds’ hands, as the popular actor has reportedly been cast in the upcoming film “Mississippi Grind.” Deadline wrote a couple of months ago that Reynolds has stepped in to replace Jake Gyllenhaal, who had previously been rumored for the role, in what sounds like an old school gambling movie for a new generation.

These days, our definition of gambling is changing drastically. In Las Vegas, the average visitor prefers to simply play some video poker or camp out at slot machines than actually jump in on a card game with real people. People get absorbed in Betfair and similar online environments where poker, blackjack, and various other casino games are offered for real money, and where special promotions and bonuses are available for loyal members and VIPs. And sometimes, these sites even offer apps and mobile services for gamblers to enjoy on the go. In short, casino gaming has been made more convenient – and the result is, we’ve lost our grasp on the more rugged, “underground” aspect of the popular hobby.

It would seem from the early synopsis that “Mississippi Grind” is bringing this gritty, underground vibe back. The movie will follow an indebted gambler (played by the rapidly emerging Ben Mendelsohn) who links up with a younger partner (Ryan Reynolds) to tour the southern United States in an attempt to make some quick money gambling. There’s an undeniable “Rounders” feel to that synopsis, and as such we could easily see this movie gathering a cult following, and likely doing quite well.

Another factor working in Ryan Reynolds’ favor is that the film will be written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who, as Cinema Blend notes, helped to skyrocket Ryan Gosling to critical acclaim with 2006’s “Half Nelson.” This implies that “Mississippi Grind” is exactly the kind of project Ryan Reynolds fans have been waiting for to give the capable actor a real chance to shine. Production on the film begins early in 2014, and here’s hoping it makes it to theaters quickly!
