Toronto: Naomi Watts Joining Errol Morris’ Thriller

'Holland, Michigan' set to start filming in April

Naomi Watts is heading for the Great Lakes State, with the actress in negotiations to star in documentary helmer Errol Morris’ “Holland, Michigan.”

The project would be the second non-documentary film for Morris, who is in Toronto with “The Unknown Known” about former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. He also directed 1991’s “The Dark Wind.”

Filming has been set for April with Le Grisbi Productions’  John Lesher and Adam Kassan producing. The script, written by Andrew Sodroski, centers on a woman who begins her own affair after suspecting her husband of cheating only to discover her spouse is a serial killer.

Watts will be seen next in “Diana.” She is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.

Morris won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2003 for “The Fog of War.” He’s repped by WME.

News of Watts being in talks for “Holland” was first reported by the Deadline.com site.
