A Belt, Dress and two plum movie roles

A Belt, Dress and two plum movie roles

They said she’s been offered more roles since her shoplifting ordeal than she has in the last five years, and they were right. Ms Winona Ryder is seriously snapping up the roles. And some good ones of that.

Last seen opposite Adam Sandler in “Mr Deeds” [betcha she’s regretting that one now], Ms Ryder has won a lead role opposite Sean Connery and Klaus Maria Brandauer in Milos Forman’s upcoming adaptation of Sandor Marai’s Hungarian novel “Embers”. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The story concerns two old men, once best friends, who meet again after a 41-year break in their relationship. The friends grew up together in military school; one came from a rich landowning family and subsequently became a colonel (Connery), the other is from a more humble background (Brandauer). The pair are separated after the colonel, as a young man, marries the woman they both secretly love (Ryder).

Ryder is also attached to star in Robert Altman’s “The Widow Claire” for which discussions with financiers are taking place. The flick is set against the backdrop of World War II. Ryder stars as a young widow with two children who is caught between the affections of two men — a sweet young soldier about to go to war and the town’s most sought-after playboy. According to the trades, Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew McConaughey have met with Director Altman about also joining the film.

And to cap things off, Ryder will be starring in a sequel to “Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael”….or maybe not.

Hey, seriously, where’s “Heathers 2” got to?
