Catherine Zeta Jones sawn in half!

Joins the cast of the Harry Houdini biopic


The hot-plate-esque steamy Catherine Zeta Jones – rumoured to be soon reteaming with hubby Michael for an adventure called “Racing the Monsoon”, in which she’ll play the goodie, and he, the baddie – will join Australian actor Guy Pearce for “Death Defying Acts”, a film based on the life of magic-man Harry Houdini.

The movie, from director Gillian Armstrong, centers on Houdini during the height of his career in 1926, when he toured the world, amassing large crowds with his elaborate and daring escape performances.

Zeta-Jones is set to play an exotic psychic with whom Houdini embarks on a passionate affair, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie will lens in the U.K this Summer.
