Susan Sarandon has joined the cast of Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones,” based on Alice Sebold’s tome, for DreamWorks.
Rachel Weisz, Ryan Gosling and newcomer Saoirse Ronan star in the pic, which Jackson begins lensing in October.
Story revolves around a young girl who watches over her family — and killer — from heaven. Sarandon will play the grandmother, who comes to live with the family after the girl’s murder.
Stanley Tucci is circling the role of the killer.
Sarandon will be seen later this year in “Mr. Woodcock,” “In the Valley of Elah” and “Enchanted.”
