For savvier cinephiles have been keeping up with Felicity Jones as she rose through the ranks of Brit TV before breaking out in last year's woozy bruise romance "Like Crazy," it looks like the actress may finally be breaking into something that will bring her into the mainstream.

Deadline reports that the actress is set to star in "The Chelsea" for Nancy Meyers, one of a couple of projects the director is eyeing right now. The famed writer/director has been behind hit crowd pleasers like "Father Of The Bride," "What Women Want" and "It's Complicated," and this looks like this will be cut from the same cloth. Details are slight at the moment, but the story -- written by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer -- is said to be an ensemble dramedy set in the Chelsea Apartments in New York City. We just hope it's not an ensemble in the "Valentine's Day" sense of the word. The plan is for Meyers to cast this out, before bringing it to a studio or distributor, as many projects do these days.

As for Jones, she's already wrapped the next film from Drake Doremus, has a small role in the vibrator comedy "Hysteria" coming to theaters this summer and will star in Dickens tale "The Invisble Woman" for Ralph Fiennes who will direct and take the lead in the picture. As for that Howard Hughes movie with Warren Beatty? Yeah, we don't know what's going on with that either.
