Rachel Weisz boards Miss You Already

Rachel WeiszIt's all change at upcoming feature Miss You Already, with news of revised lead talent and director.

Jennifer Aniston had previously been mooted to star alongside Toni Collette in the comedy drama, but Oscar-winning British actress Rachel Weisz will now headline with A Long Way Down's Collette.

In another major tweak, the director's chair will now be occupied by Catherine Hardwicke, best known for Twilight (2008), who replaces Paul Andrew Williams.  

With a screenplay by Morwenna Banks, the film centres on two lifelong friends whose friendship is fractured when one becomes seriously ill; the other pregnant.

The producers are Christopher Simon and Felix Vossen of Embargo Films; among the many executive producers is Trudie Styler, who joins the project on behalf of her New York-based shingle Maven Pictures.

Miss You Already is currently slated for an autumn shoot in the UK; details on key hires including casting director and line producer can be found on Production Intelligence, our online database of advance and archive productions.
