Persistence pays off it would seem. To date, celebrated actor Alan Rickman only has one feature film directing credit to his name, 1997's "The Winter Guest," and while we've yet to see a sophomore effort, it hasn't been for lack of trying. Rickman has had a couple of projects percolating over the years, but the one that he's stuck with has been "A Little Chaos." It looks like his determination has finally yielded some results, with two great actors on board and a start date in sight.

Persistence pays off it would seem. To date, celebrated actor Alan Rickman only has one feature film directing credit to his name, 1997's "The Winter Guest," and while we've yet to see a sophomore effort, it hasn't been for lack of trying. Rickman has had a couple of projects percolating over the years, but the one that he's stuck with has been "A Little Chaos." It looks like his determination has finally yielded some results, with two great actors on board and a start date in sight.

Baz Bamigboye reveals that Kate Winslet and "Rust & Bone" star Matthias Schoenaerts will topline the Rickman directed "A Little Chaos." Penned by Allison Deegan, the film will tell the unique story of rival landscapes gardeners who are both commissioned to create a fountain at Versailles by Louis XIV. Winslet and Schoenaerts will spar in the main roles, and Rickman has been busy scouting locations and revising the script in preparation for a spring shoot. It will be Winslet's second time up to bat with Rickman, co-starring with him in "Sense & Sensibility," while Schoenaerts adds the project to a very busy 2013 slate that also includes "Suite Francaise" with Michelle Williams. The guy sure knows how to pick his projects.

While we wonder about just how compelling a gardening drama with frocks and wigs will be, we'd basically watch Winslet and Schoenaerts read the phonebook, so we're down. It's been a long journey for Rickman who has been talking up this one for years, but hopefully everything is finally in place.
