NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - “Weeds” star Mary-Louise Parker will begin a May/December romance with Michael Douglas in “Solitary,” an indie drama co-starring Susan Sarandon, Danny DeVito and Jenna Fischer.
The story revolves around an ex-auto dealership owner (Douglas) whose career and marriage have collapsed because of his less-than-ethical behavior. Parker will play a high-powered society belle.
Brian Koppelman and David Levien will direct the Millennium Films feature from Koppelman’s script.
The shoot, set to begin next month in New York, will be a perfect fit for Parker. The Manhattan-based actress is gearing up to play Hedda Gabler in the Roundabout Theater Co.’s new take on Henrik Ibsen’s classic play of the same name. Following the January-March run, Parker will return to “Weeds,” the hit Showtime series that wrapped its fourth season last month.
