Camilla Belle will star in an upcoming Charles Matthau‘s movie, titled Freaky Deaky.
That’s actually an adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s 1988 novel of the same name, and we also know that William H. Macy has long been attached to star in the film as well.
Now, with Belle on board, he will have quite good company, indeed!
Leonard’s book follows:
“…a vivid group of characters who are mainly veterans of the youth rebellion of the 1960s. Chief among them are Chris Mankowski, 38-year-old Detroit police sergeant, newly transferred from the bomb squad to sex crimes; Woody Ricks, alcoholic auto scion; Donnell Lewis, ex-Black Panther who is acting as Woody’s driver, nursemaid and would-be swindler.
Robin Abbott, ex-con, exfugitive (she bombed a federal office building) who has plans for a million dollar movie based on Woody’s life, with help from her old boyfriend and erstwhile bombing partner Skip Gibbs, now a movie dynamite expert.
The only character who does not have ties to the ’60s is Greta Wyatt, stagenamed Ginger Jones, who meets Chris when she reports that Woody has assaulted her. When Chris pursues the investigation, he is suspended from the force, ostensibly for nonresidence in Detroit but really because of Woody’s clout. Now determined to get to the bottom of things, Chris is caught up in a web of scams plotted by Robin, Skip and Donnell.”
So, at the moment, we know that Belle will play one half of an ex-couple with an extreme political agenda who get back together for a job that will net them millions.
When it comes to Macy, we have no idea if he would play Belle’s ex-boyfriend or a police bomb squad expert who tries to take them down.
As usual, we’ll keep you updated!
