Actress added to Scorsese-directed drama

Michelle Williams will join “Shutter Island,” playing the wife of U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) in the Martin Scorsese-directed drama for Paramount Pictures.

Williams is in talks to join DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo and Ben Kingsley in the adaptation of the bestselling novel by Dennis Lehane. Laeta Kalogridis wrote the script, and Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer, Brad Fischer and Scorsese will produce.

The drama revolves around the trip made by Daniels to a remote New England island in 1954 to figure out how a multiple murderess escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane..

Williams just opened in the ensemble of the Todd Haynes-directed Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There.” She will next be seen starring with Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman in the Marcel Langenegger-directed drama “The Tourist” and the Charlie Kaufman-directed “Synedoche, N.Y.”

She will juggle the role in “Shutter Island” with another in Lukas Moodysson’s currently shooting pic “Mammoth,” in which she stars with Gael Garcia Bernal.
