renee zellweger movieRenee Zellweger thinks she can handle "The Whole Truth."

The Oscar winner is in talks to star opposite Daniel Craig in the courtroom thriller "The Whole Truth," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This would be Zellweger's first movie in four years. Perhaps "The Whole Truth," an indie directed by Courtney Hunt ("Frozen River"), can help revive her once-acclaimed career. In the early 2000s, the actress enjoyed many critical and commercial successes, from "Jerry Maguire" to "Chicago" to the "Bridget Jones Diary" movies. And she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for "Cold Mountain" in 2004.

But then Zellweger appeared in a string of unmemorable duds, like "New in Town" and "Leatherheads." Her last film, 2010's "My Own Love Song," was a flop that went straight to DVD.

Choosing the indie route could be a smart strategy for the 44-year-old. Hey, look what it did for her former "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" co-star, Matthew McConaughey!
