Camilla Belle is in negotiations to star opposite Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role of IFC Films' Rose and the Snake for writer-director Rebecca Miller. Up-and-coming actor Paul Dano (The Emperor's Club) also will star in the film, with Beau Bridges making an appearance in a small but pivotal role. Production begins in the summer with Catherine Keener also starring (HR 3/7). The project sees Day-Lewis star as a dying, widowed father of a 16-year-old girl named Rose (Belle). They live on an abandoned commune, where Rose has been sheltered from the world. When the father's new love, a single mom named Kathleen (Keener), and her two teenage boys, come to live with them, Rose undergoes a sexual awakening with both liberating and devastating consequences. Dano plays the sexually charged Thadius, the elder of the two boys, who immediately sets his sights on Rose. Bridges plays Marty Rance, a real estate developer interested in buying the commune from the father. Belle, repped by CAA, has starred in such films as The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Patriot, Practical Magic and Invisible Circus. Dano, repped by the Gersh Agency and Industry Entertainment's Sandra Chan, won an Independent Spirit Award last year for his performance in the indie feature L.I.E. He just completed shooting New Regency's The Girl Next Door and will next play the lead in the indie film Light and the Sufferer for writer-director Chris Peditto. Bridges is also repped by CAA.
