Eva Green To Star In Womb
Joins the new Timelord for cloning drama

10 February 2009  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: Variety

The lovely Eva Green, the mere mention of whose name has us coming on all swoony, has signed up for Hungarian director Benedek Fliegauf's first English-language film Womb.

The actress joins Dr. Who's new Timelord, Matt Smith, for what could be cinema's first genetically-modified romance, in which she'll play a grieving widow who decides to clone her dead husband.

Set in the near future, Womb will tackle the moral and ethical issues surrounding the human cloning. It's certainly punchy, controversial stuff, and represents another interesting choice for Green, who will shortly be appearing in a dual role (including one as a suicidal Goth) in Gerald McMorrow's dystopian fantasy Franklyn. That's followed by a role as a teacher in Cracks, a drama set at girls boarding school in the 1930s.

Womb will take the beautiful Ms. Green to Germany where shooting is scheduled to start in March.

Your Comments

It's a sure fire hit.
Depends when it comes out. And it depends whether or not Matt Smith gathers a fan base as the new Doctor. Eva will probably be brilliant as ever. My one doubt is...cloning??? And its 'moral issues' so that can guarantee some sort of publicity. More

Movies always do cloning wrong
I doubt this one will be the exception. More
