Woods near date with ‘Daughter’

Thesp to join Travolta, Cromwell in murder mystery

James Woods is in final negotiations to join the cast of the murder mystery “The General’s Daughter,” for Paramount.

Woods joins John Travolta, James Cromwell, Leslie Stefanson and Timothy Hutton in the pic, which begins shooting next month in Savannah, Ga., under director Simon West.

A Paramount spokesman confirmed Friday that Woods was all but signed for the role of Colonel Moore, a military psychological operations chief who helps probe the death of a well-known general’s offspring, played by Stefanson. Travolta is a military investigator, and Hutton a friend of the victim.

Woods, who is repped by Toni Howard at ICM, is set to appear next year in “True Crime” and “On Any Given Sunday.” Notable past roles include “Against All Odds” (1984), “Salvador” (1986) and “Ghosts of Mississippi” (1996).

“Daughter” is being produced by Mace Neufeld, with Jonathan D. Krane as exec producer. Screenplay, based on Nelson DeMille’s novel, was written by William Goldman, Mark Montgomery and Chris Bertolini.
