Eminem's Mamma has a "Door in the Floor"


Comeback queen Kim Basinger ("8 Mile") is in negotiations to star with Jeff Bridges in Focus Features/Revere Pictures’ "Door in the Floor" for writer-helmer Tod Williams, says The Hollywood Reporter. The project, an adaptation of John Irving’s novel "A Widow for One Year," centers on Ruth, a writer in her 30s who is searching for romantic happiness despite bearing emotional scars from her childhood. She never knew her two older brothers, who died as teenagers in an automobile accident, and the tragedy ultimately drives her parents apart. Her father, Ted (Bridges), a children’s book writer, copes by seducing younger women, while her mother, Marion (Basinger), has sex with her father’s 16-year-old assistant and abandons her family.
