U books ‘Holiday’ trip

Zeta-Jones in talks to star for Working

Catherine Zeta-Jones is in negotiations to star in — and may produce — “Rachel’s Holiday” for Universal-based Working Title Films.

Pic, to be directed by Francesca Joseph, is an adaptation of Marian Keyes’ novel about a woman’s drug addiction.

In the dramatic story with comic moments, the protag overdoses on sleeping pills and then finds herself losing her boyfriend, best friend and job before being flown from New York back to Dublin, Ireland, to check into a rehab clinic.

Jonathan Harvey wrote an earlier draft of script.

Alison Owen will produce pic via her Ruby Films banner with Working Title co-chairmen Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. David Jones, Zeta-Jones’ producing partner is negotiating to produce with her. BBC Films developed pic with Owen.

Zeta-Jones will next appear in “Legend of Zorro” for Columbia Pictures.
