Christine Lahti has been cast opposite Jeff Goldblum in TriStar Pictures’ “Hideaway,” which is set to start production under “Lawnmower Man” director Brett Leonard in March.
Lahti will play Goldblum’s wife in the adaptation of Dean Koontz’s novel.
“Hideaway” is the story of a battle between two men returned from the dead — one good and one evil.
Lahti’s last major studio release was Universal Pictures’ “Leaving Normal.” She recently appeared in Lifetime’s “The Good Fight,” Showtime’s “The Fear Inside” and the Circle Rep stage production “Three Hotels.”
She and husband Tommy Schlamme, the director, had twins in August.
Lahti’s deal on “Hideaway” was negotiated by International Creative Management agent Toni Howard. “Hideaway” will be produced by actor Dennis Quaid and partner Cathleen Summers. Summers-Quaid Prods. has a three-year, first-look deal with TriStar.
TriStar also announced that production will start Monday on an untitled Christmas movie from director Nora Ephron.
Pic will be shot at New York’s Kaufman Astoria Studios before moving to Los Angeles. Producers are Paul Witt and Tony Thomas. Executive producers are Joseph Hartwick and Delia Ephron.
