‘Evelyn’ beckons Margulies

Thesp inks to join Brosnan, Beresford on Cinerenta-financed pic

NEW YORK — Julianna Margulies has signed to join Pierce Brosnan in the Bruce Beresford-directed United Artists drama “Evelyn,” with Aidan Quinn and Stephen Rea also negotiating for the film.

The film is based on the true story of Desmond Doyle (Brosnan), who, after losing his job and watching his wife leave the country with another man, has his children taken away by an arcane custody law. Doyle cleans up his act and wages an unlikely legal battle. Margulies would play the woman who helps him regain custody.

The film is financed by German-based Cinerenta, with Brosnan and his Irish Dreamtime partner Beau St. Clair producing with Cinerenta’s Michael Ohoven. Paul Pender wrote the script.

Since leaving her long run on “ER,” Margulies most recently starred in the TNT miniseries “The Mists of Avalon” and Jon Robin Baitz’s play “Ten Unknowns” at Lincoln Center. She is repped by WMA, AMG and attorney Michael Gendler. Quinn is repped by WMA and Rae by ICM.
