Sex addiction tales seem to be a trend on the rise (Shame, Thank You For Sharing), all paving the way to the inevitable Fifty Shades of Grey.

Oh yeah, and there's also a flying horse and the story somehow spans from modern day back to the 19th century. This »

A Beautiful Mind was an important film in the career of Akiva Goldsman. While the writer/producer has made a number of big hits throughout his career, the script he wrote for Ron Howard's 2001 drama ended up winning him the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, a monumental achievement for anyone in Hollywood. As Goldsman is now getting set to make his directorial debut with an adaptation of the book Winter's Tale, it's no surprise that he's interested in borrowing pieces from A Beautiful Mind to ensure success. He has already gotten Russell Crowe to sign on the dotted line and now the winner of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her part in the picture is close to putting her signature on a contract as well. Deadline has learned that Jennifer Connelly is now in talks for a part in Winter's Tale. Based on the novel by Mark Helprin, »
It seems Jennifer Connelly has been out of the spotlight a bit for the last few years, mostly thanks to a string of movies -- "Creation," "Virginia," "The Dilemma," "Salvation Boulevard" -- that just did nothing for her. But she seems to be on the rebound. Of course, she booked a ticket on board Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and now she's set to reunite with the writer of one of her career highlights, "A Beautiful Mind." Connelly is in talks to take a role in Akiva Goldsman's directorial debut "A Winter's Tale." Based on the acclaimed 1983 novel by Mark Helprin, the story follows a thief (Colin Farrell) who breaks into a wealthy man’s (William Hurt) home, sparking a relationship with the man’s terminally ill daughter (Jessica Brown Findlay) with reincarnation, a flying horse, and a time-shift of 100 years all playing a part in the plot. Matt Bomer and Lucy Griffiths will play. »

In the works for a while now, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman ("Cinderella Man," "I Am Legend") had to do a finessing to get his directorial debut, the ambitious fantasy "A Winter's Tale" off the ground. First, he had to shave $20 million off the initial budget of $75 million, and to ease studio concerns about the marketability, he got pals Russell Crowe and Will Smith (see above credits) to take small roles. But with casting firming up over the past year, this thing is now ready to roll and the last puzzle pieces have fallen into place. "White Collar" and "Magic Mike" star Matt Bomer, bonafide legend Eva Marie Saint ("North By Northwest," "On The Waterfront," man more) and "True Blood" star Lucy Griffiths have all come on board.
