Death Defying Acts

Guy Pearce will star in the Houdini drama Death Defying Acts, with Rachel Weisz in talks to co-star as the magician's mistress, reports Variety.

Based on true events during the escape artist Harry Houdini's 1926 tour of Britain, the film follows Houdini's passionate relationship with a woman he encounters in Scotland.

The film will be directed by Gillian Armstrong and was written by Tony Grisoni (Tideland) and Brian Ward (The Interpreter).

Pearce's credits include Memento and L.A. Confidential. Weisz recently starred in Constantine and will appear next in The Fountain.

Death Defying Acts starts shooting in early 2006.
