Variety reports that Sigourney Weaver and Kate Bosworth are in negotiations to star together in The Girl in the Park (which seems to have changed its title, as well as its stars), scripted by playwright David Auburn, who will also serve as first-time director for Furst Films. Auburn, who won a Pulitzer for his play Proof, also wrote the script for the Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock romantic drama The Lake House.

If talks are successful, Weaver will play a woman still traumatized by the disappearance of her 3-year-old daughter 15 years ago. When she meets a troubled young woman (Bosworth), her pain resurfaces along with the hope that the woman may be her missing child. Shooting will start this November in New York

I'm thinking this will be an interesting pairing. Both Weaver and Bosworth have demonstrated an ability to play strong independent women, and though it will probably have nothing to do with this film, the Alienseries and Superman Returns have shown that both actresses can stand up to extraterrestrials. It will be interesting to see how they play off one another. Weaver's presence apparently negates the rumor listed on IMDB that Susan Sarandon would star in this project.
