Moore mulls Col ‘Affair’

Thesp in talks to star opposite Fiennes, Rea

NEW YORK — Julianne Moore is in serious talks to star with Ralph Fiennes and Stephen Rea in “The End of the Affair,” the drama for Columbia that Neil Jordan will direct from his own script.

The film takes place in wartime London. Moore would play Rea’s repressed wife who engages in an adulterous affair with Fiennes.

The film, based on a novel by Graham Greene, was made into a 1954 film. The project has been a labor of love for Jordan.

Moore, nominated for a supporting-actress Oscar last year for “Boogie Nights,” has been working nonstop. She just completed co-starring with Sigourney Weaver in “Map of the World,” and stars in the Gus Van Sant-directed remake of “Psycho” for Imagine and Universal that opens Dec. 9.

She most recently starred with Rupert Everett and Minnie Driver in “An Ideal Husband” for Miramax and will be seen in the Robert Altman-directed “Cookie’s Fortune.”

She is repped by CAA and managed by Evelyn O’Neill and Bymel O’Neill.
