Rosamund Pike Will Return To Sender
With Shiloh Fernandez and Nick Nolte

24 May 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Patricia Beauchamp and Joe Gossett gave a screenplay to the postman, he put it in his sack, and bright and early the next morning... it was being filmed with Rosamund Pike, Shiloh Fernandez and Nick Nolte. Well OK, maybe that isn't quite how Return To Sender found itself in production, but it's underway nevertheless, under the directorial eye of Fouad Mikati (Operation: Endgame).

Not quite the Elvis-based rom-com its title might imply, this Return To Sender sounds a bit more sinister. It involves an uptight nurse in a small town (Pike) whose life changes irrevocably after a blind date with a guy (Fernandez) who turns out not to be all he seems. In the aftermath, Pike sets out to rebuild her life. Nolte will be playing her father.

THR's description of Pike as "victim to a life-altering event" sounds like coy language for a rather nasty date-related assault, but there's no confirmation of that so far so we shouldn't leap to conclusions. The official line is that Return To Sender is a psychological thriller, and that single-random-event-that-changes-everything-forever business sounds very like the hook for any number of Ian McEwan novels. So perhaps, superficially, this will be somewhere along the lines of something like Enduring Love.

Either way, it sounds a scene-stealing opportunity for Fernandez following Red Riding Hood and the Evil Dead remake and it's another entry in Pike's rather full diary. She'll follow this with Josh Duhamel's thriller French Window, and we'll next see her in The World's End, out in the UK on July 19.

Return To Sender is shooting right now in New Orleans.
