Tripplehorn joins Lynch in ‘Doors’

Jeanne Tripplehorn, who co-starred in such pics as “Basic Instinct” and “Waterworld,” is set to join Gwyneth Paltrow in “Sliding Doors,” from Sydney Pollack’s Mirage Entertainment.

Irish actor John Lynch (“In the Name of the Father”) also joins a cast that includes John Hannah of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” fame.

The romantic comedy is produced by Pollack and Bill Horberg of Mirage, along with Brit producer Philippa Braithwaite (“Staggered”). Pic marks the helming debut of Peter Howitt from his original screenplay.

The film is a contemporary comic romance about a young woman who explores two different scenarios of love and lifestyle.

“Sliding Doors” has been financed by Guy East and Nigel Sinclair’s Intermedia. The finance, production and distribution company, based in L.A. and London, is in final negotiations with Miramax and Paramount on a unique distribution deal for the film that would call for it to be distributed theatrically in the U.S. by Miramax and in other English-language territories by Paramount.

Intermedia would retain the remaining worldwide rights.

Tripplehorn made her onscreen debut in the 1992 thriller “Basic Instinct,” from which she segued to roles in “The Firm” (working under Pollack’s helm) and “Waterworld.”

The Tulsa native can be seen in the upcoming pics “‘Til There Was You” for Par and “Office Killers.”

Lynch has made a name for himself in such films as “In the Name of the Father,” “Moll Flanders” and the recently released “Angel Baby.”

“Sliding Doors” is set to begin production on April 1 in London.

Tripplehorn was repped by Danny Sussman and Michelle Stern of the William Morris Agency.
