Graham gets ‘Committed’

First leading role for up-and-comer

EXCLUSIVE
After skating to acclaim as Roller Girl in “Boogie Nights,” Heather Graham is set to topline “Committed,” an indie feature directed by “Manny & Lo” helmer Lisa Krueger.

Miramax Films is in final talks to finance and distribute the project, which will mark Graham’s first leading role in a feature film.

Marlen Hecht and Dean Silvers, who produced Sony Classics’ “Manny & Lo,” are set to produce “Committed,” which Krueger also scripted.

In the dramedy, she will star as an intense woman whose husband has left her to “find himself.” She travels the country trying to find him, and when she does, myriad complications ensue as she attempts to renew their commitment to one another.

Pic is expected to go before the cameras this spring.

Although she has numerous film credits — including “Swingers,” “Drugstore Cowboy” and “Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle” — the former child actor is finding her career in high gear following the Paul Thomas Anderson-helmed “Boogie Nights.”

Graham recently wrapped Danny Boyle’s “Alien Love Triangle” for Miramax, and she will later film “Bofinger’s Big Thing,” starring Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy, for Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

She can be seen next in Fox Searchlight’s “Two Girls and a Guy” and New Line’s “Lost in Space.”

Graham is repped by CAA’s Michael Davis and Karen Friedman. She is managed by First Artists Management.
