Naomi Watts in talks to star in 'Demolition'.
'The Impossible' actress is in negotiations to appear alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the upcoming drama, which is to be directed by 'Dallas Buyers Club' filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallee, TheWrap reports.
The movie will be based on the 2007 Black List script by Bryan Sipe and will follow a young investment banker (Gyllenhaal) who struggles to understand his emotional disconnect following the tragic death of his wife in an auto accident.
If Watts seals the deal she will play a pot-smoking customer service representative who, despite having a boyfriend, falls for Gyllenhaal's character as she learns of his pain and loss.
Speaking previously, Vallee described the project as: ''A powerful and touching story, written with a strong and sincere desire to try to understand the human psyche, what makes us so unique, so special, what makes us love.''
He added: ''This is a script of a rare quality, of a beautiful humanity.''
Watts is currently shooting the 'Divergent' sequel 'Insurgent' alongside Shailene Woodley and is slated to reprise her role as Evelyn, leader of the Factionless, in the upcoming 'Allegiant: Part 1' and Allegiant: Part 2'.
