Ryan Reynolds also stars in the true story of a Holocaust survivor’s crusade to get back her long-lost family heirlooms from the Austrian government.
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 while Bruhl plays the lawyer going against them.
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.
