Naomi Watts Boarding ‘Book of Henry’ with ‘Jurassic World’ Director

Naomi Watts is in negotiations to star in the film “Book of Henry,” with “Jurassic World” helmer Colin Trevorrow already on board to direct.

Focus Features is financing and will handle the release of the film, with Sidney Kimmel Entertainment co-producing with Double Nickel Entertainment. Producers are Sidney Kimmel and Carla Hacken along with Double Nickel’s Jenette Kahn and Adam Richman.

Trevorrow joined the project in March. Shooting is expected to begin in New York in September.

The logline for “Book of Henry” is being kept under wraps. The script is by Gregg Hurwitz, who wrote the novels “Tell No Lies” and “Don’t Look Back.”

Watts is starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in Jean-Marc Vallee’s “Demolition,” the opening night film at the Toronto Film Festival. She will be seen next in the thriller “Shut In” for EuropaCorp and Lionsgate’s “The Divergent Series: Allegiant, Part 1.”

Watts is repped by CAA, Markham, Froggatt and Irwin and Untitled Entertainment.
