'Martha' Puts Zeta-Jones in the Kitchen
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- Catherine Zeta-Jones is lined up to star in the Castle Rock/Warner Bros. romantic comedy "Mostly Martha."

Sandra Nettelbeck wrote and directed the original 2001 German film, about a chef (Zeta-Jones in the new version) who becomes the guardian for her eight-year-old niece, while also finding time to woo her new sous-chef. The original won a number of international awards and made more than $4 million at the domestic box office, a solid number for a German import.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Shine" director Scott Hicks is set to take the helm of the remake.

Zeta-Jones will return to the big screen this fall in "The Legend of Zorro," her first film since a supporting role in "Ocean's Twelve" last year. The "Chicago" Oscar winner has been attached to a number of upcoming films including "Smoke & Mirrors" and "Stompanato," in which she would possibly play Lana Turner.

No timetable is set for any of these potential projects.
