Trio elemental for HBO's 'Zinc'

21 June 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Uma Thurman, Jonathan Pryce and Paddy Considine have been tapped to star in My Zinc Bed, an HBO Films/BBC adaptation of the play by acclaimed playwright David Hare (The Hours).

Anthony Page (Inadmissible Evidence) is on board to direct the film from a screenplay by Hare.

The three-person Zinc examines issues of alcohol addiction and obsession through the story of a young recovering alcoholic (Considine) who becomes involved with his boss' (Pryce) young wife (Thurman), formerly a cocaine addict.

"We are thrilled to be working with David Hare -- he truly is a writer in a league of his own," HBO Films president Colin Callender said. "It is a testament to his provocative script, and to director Anthony Page, that we have been able to bring together such a wonderful cast of distinguished actors. We are delighted to have been able to lure Uma Thurman, Jonathan Pryce and Paddy Considine back to HBO."

Thurman won a Golden Globe for her starring role in HBO's Hysterical Blindness. Pryce earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for HBO's Barbarians at the Gate. Paddy Considine stars in HBO Films' upcoming PU-239.

Zinc is executive produced by Robert Fox (The Vertical Hour). Frank Doelger (HBO's John Adams), Tracey Scoffield (Mrs. Henderson Presents) and Lee Morris (A Midsummer Night's Dream) produce. »
