Warner Bros has announced that production on the Hilary Swank thriller The Reaping has resumed in Hurricane Katrina-struck Louisiana. Director Stephen Hopkins said: "On behalf of our cast and crew, we are pleased to be able to complete our filming in Louisiana and to be part of the region's recovery effort." The hopeful sign comes after fears had been expressed that the state's efforts to encourage film production could be wrecked by the natural disaster.
Catherine Zeta-Jones has signed up to play an obsessive celebrity chef whose well-ordered life is upset when she becomes guardian to her young niece. Mostly Martha (nothing to do with disgraced gourmet-guru Martha Stewart) is a remake of German comedy Bella Martha, and will be directed by Shine's Scott Hicks.
