Sorry silicone lovers -- this is not a case of actresses getting bustier, or joining a film about the porn industry or silicon implants. If you remember, last November I blogged about Ray Winstone's upcoming films, one of which was 44 Inch Chest, which would have him acting alongside Ian McShane, John Hurt, and Tim Roth. According to Variety, even more have signed on for the British gangster film -- namely, Tom Wilkinson, Stephen Dillane (who recently kicked butt as Thomas Jefferson in John Adams), Joanne Whalley, and Melvil Poupaud.

Written by Sexy Beast writers Louis Melles and David Scinto, and being directed by Melcolm Venville, the film stars Winstone as a gangster "who seeks revenge on his wife and young French lover." I think it would be safe to say that Whalley (Willow) will play the wife, and Poupaud (Goodboy in Speed Racer) will play the lover, since, well, his name in the film is "Loverboy."

The film is currently in production in London, and some distribution agreements have already been reached -- Alliance will handle the release in Canada and the UK, and Momentum will handle Spain.
