[Casting News TBC] Naomi Watts to play Laura Bush in fictionalized biopic “American Wife”

April 18, 2014

It’s recently been confirmed that Naomi Watts is attached to star as Alice Lindgren, the fictionalized version of former first lady Laura Bush in a biopic based loosely on her life. The script is currently being penned by Ron Nyswaner and is based off the 2008 novel of the same name AMERICAN WIFE by Curtis Sittenfeld. All the character names and events have been slightly disguised, but the story follows a woman who marries the rambunctious son of a political dynasty, who eventually becomes president. The independent film is being produced by Red Crown and Marc Platt Productions, and is currently in search of a director.

This could be a huge chance for Naomi Watts to regain footing and even get a possible Oscar nod for portraying a member of one of the most controversial political families of the current era. Watts has been dancing between small indie films and box-office stumbles of late, and this is a great opportunity to get some positive attention.....
