Hall may step out for ‘Dancer’

James Marsh to direct film

Rebecca Hall is in talks to star in an adaptation of Tom Bradby’s tome “Shadow Dancer,” currently in pre-production.

Pic will be directed by “Man on a Wire” helmer James Marsh and is produced by Unanimous Pictures’ Chris Coen. Ireland’s Element Pictures is also on board to produce, along with Blighty’s BBC Films, while Gallic shingle Wild Bunch is also backing the project.

Story, adapted by Bradby, follows the tale of a young woman, a former IRA terrorist turned informer for Blighty’s MI5. Her brothers are both heavily involved with the IRA and her husband was killed by Brit security forces. But when she is arrested over an aborted bombing attempt in London, she is forced to reveal her past if she wishes to see her children again.

Script for the feature was recently featured in the fourth annual Brit List of hot screenplays in Blighty, which lists the best unproduced screenplays floating around the U.K. and Ireland.

Hall will be hitting London’s West End in January, when she’ll star in “Twelfth Night” at the National Theatre for three months.

She can next be seen in upcoming pics “Everything Must Go,” “A Bag of Hammers,” and “The Awakening.”
