EXCLUSIVE: Movement is beginning again on the long-in-development adaptation of Elmore Leonard's "Freaky Deaky" with a new actress boarding the project.

The Playlist has learned that Camilla Belle ("10,000 B.C.," "From Prada to Nada") is attached to star in the film, with reps for the actress confirming her involvement. Based on Leonard's 1988 novel, the Detroit-based narrative features a twisty plot involving a bomb-making ex-couple with radical politics who reunite for a score worth millions, while a cop with bomb squad experience tries to take them down. And while the crime-and-police milieu is familiar ground for Leonard, the bomb-making plot adds a twist to the author's usual terrain.

The project first started picking up steam during TIFF last year when William H. Macy signed to the film, and we presume he's still involved (reps didn't return inquiries at press time). A number of names are said to be circling the project at the moment, but two rumored actors -- Sam Rockwell and Hayden Christensen --are not part of the cast, reps for both thesps confirm to us. Charles Matthau -- son of Walter Matthau -- was attached to direct the film last fall.

The project has been knocking around Hollywood for a while with Quentin Tarantino producing at one point, Kurt Russell attached at another, and Richard Brooks, Monte Hellman and Jim McBride all sitting in the director's chair at various stages of the film's lengthy development.
