Zeta-Jones And Douglas For Racetrack Heist Thriller
February 12, 2003
As reported by Variety: The 'Traffic' team of Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and producer Laura Bickford are re-teaming for 'Monkeyface,' a racetrack heist thriller that will shoot in Miami in late September. Monkeyface is the name of a racehorse, and the script by David Harris revolves around knocking off a racetrack.
Stephen Frears will direct. Zeta-Jones, who has drawn raves for her singing and hoofing abilities in 'Chicago,' will make 'Monkeyface' the first film she does after she and Douglas welcome their second child, who's due in April. `Monkeyface' will be the couple's first real onscreen pairing.
