If there is one actress we've been hoping to see more of on the big screen it's Vinessa Shaw
. An underrated talent, she shined in James Gray
's "Two Lovers
" and nabbed our attention in "3:10 To Yuma
," but her appearances in movies have been too few and far between. She popped up in "Big Miracle
" last month, and now she's landed a new gig much more worth her time and talent.
Steven Soderbergh has cast the actress in his upcoming thriller "The Bitter Pill." Joining a pretty undeniably great cast including man-of-the-moment Channing Tatum alongside Rooney Mara, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the Scott Z. Burns-penned story centers on Emily Hawkins (Mara), a woman who turns to prescription meds to cope with the anxiety of the upcoming release from prison of her husband (Tatum). Shaw will play the wife of Law's character.
Lensing on the film is set to get underway next month, with Open Road already lined up to distribute, and Soderbergh aiming for a March 2013 release. [Deadline]
