Weisz Moves Into The Big League
RACHEL WEISZ is set to become one of Britain's highest paid actresses after signing a deal to star alongside Hollywood hunk KEANU REEVES in a new blockbuster.
The ABOUT A BOY star will appear in CONSTANTINE - which is adapted from comic book HELLBLAZER - and is expected to net $8 million (GBP5 million) from her share of the film's profits.
The plot of Constantine revolves around the mysterious death of Weisz's character ANGELA's sister. Reeves will play a crime fighter shrouded in intrigue who teams up with Weisz's policewoman to solve the case.
Stunning Weisz - known to American audiences for her performances in THE MUMMY movies - will rank alongside British superstars CATHERINE ZETA-JONES, KATE WINSLET, KATE BECKINSALE and MINNIE DRIVER if the film proves a hit.03/10/2003 13:48
