Fojnda in talks for Par’s ‘Dexterity’

Bridget Fonda is in negotiations to play the wife in Paramount Pictures’ contemporary drama “Dexterity,” her agent, United Talent Agency’s Ilene Feldman, confirmed Monday.

“Dexterity,” which is set to be directed by Michael Caton-Jones (“Doc Hollywood”) and was recently given a script polish by Darryl Ponicsan, is the story of a couple whose marriage crumbles after the husband — reportedly to be played by Jason Patric — loses his job when the town’s factory closes.

The project, based on the novel of the same name, was originally developed by Timothy Hutton as a vehicle for him to star in and direct. Hutton will most likely receive a producing credit on the film. Laura Viederman and Gordon Goldstein will also produce.

According to sources, the film will roll in January. Fonda is currently filming TriStar Pictures’ “Cop Gives Waitress $ 2 Million Tip” for director Andrew Bergman.
