Kate Bosworth is slowly staking out her piece of Hollywood as she wracks up a film or two a year. She's had a number of fictional turns from surfer babe in Blue Crush to winning a date with Tad Hamilton. At the same time she's also taken a little bit of yin and yang in the biopic world, having both starred as Sandra Dee in Kevin Spacey's Beyond the Sea, and as Dawn Schiller, John Holmes' teen paramour, in Wonderland. And, obviously, she took on the famous Lois Lane for Superman Returns.

Now the flaxen-haired actress is zeroing in on a deal to star in After.Life, the first feature film for Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo, which Erik Davis first mentioned in August. The film follows a woman who is somehow stuck between life and death, but is about to be buried by a funeral director. If she's not alive, nor dead, I'm not sure how she can fight to not be buried. However, considering the strangeness that is Wojtowicz-Vosloo's short film, Pâté, which is like a mash-up of David Lynch and Baz Luhrman, I'm sure there will be some sort of other-worldly logic to be applied. The film already has a cinematographer in two-time Oscar nominee John Mathieson, whose work I particularly like in Plunkett & Macleane. Production will begin later in the year, and I'm sure in the upcoming months we'll have more information on the film, and if Bosworth seals the deal. Honestly, for all the quirk of Pâté, I'm not sure how Bosworth fits in a surreal world. She seems a bit to, for lack of a better word, vanilla for a strange landscape, unless this will be a much more subdued cinematic offering.
