Zeta hits jackpot as new film doll

May 23 2004

Lydia Whitfield, Wales on Sunday

 

HOLLYWOOD starlet Catherine Zeta Jones will be playing showgirl Miss Adelaide in a new movie version of Guys And Dolls.

The famous musical is about dice-rolling gamblers and their gals in Fifties New York and Catherine is in early negotiations for the part Martine McCutcheon had set her heart on.

Tom Cruise and his representatives have reportedly been asking about the planned Miramax production. And Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe's names have also been linked to the flick.

Cruise's ex Nicole Kidman had been rumoured as a favourite for the other lead role, but is booked up for the next three years.

Harvey Weinstein, of Miramax Films, reportedly promised the show-stopping role to Catherine after she won an Oscar for his studio's picture Chicago.

McCutcheon met two executives helping to develop the film based on short stories by Damon Runyon, but was vetoed by forces who wanted a bigger name.

Before she gets to grips with her new role, Catherine will be filming in Britain this summer as a drug addict in an adaptation of best-selling Irish author Marion Keyes' novel Rachel's Holiday.

She's hoping to get her teeth into a meatier roles and may be back home in Wales next spring as she is busy lining up a film set in the world of rugby.

The comedy, Coming Out, is said to be in the vein of Billy Elliot, showing the difficulties of being a gay player and is being developed by her Milkwood Films production company.
