The multi-hyphenate has parted ways with Lionsgate after working with the studio for nine years on theatrical releases. He’d been under a first-look deal with the studio since 2008.

"I'm flying in a couple of weeks to Australia to shoot another movie with Aaron Eckhart, which I'm really excited about, called I, Frankenstein," she tells MovieWeb. "It's going to be sort of an action-drama-romance type movie. I play a scientist, and I think I'm changing up my accent. I'm going to be British in this one, which is nice for a change.
