Casting news! Deadline reports that Sienna Miller has joined the cast of “Foxcatcher,” the next film from Bennett Miller. It’s the story of Jon DuPont, the millionaire who built a training facility for Olympic wrestlers, and then murdered one of them. Steve Carell plays DuPont, with Mark Ruffalo as Dave Schultz, the murdered wrestler. Miller will play Schultz’s wife. Channing Tatum is also in the cast as Schultz’s brother.
Miller will next be playing Tippi Hedren in the HBO movie “The Girl,” about Alfred Hitchcock’s obsession with actress Hedren, who starred in two of his films, “The Birds” and “Marnie.” This is not to be confused with “Hitchcock,” the theatrical release about Hitchcock and the making of “Psycho.” There’s a lot of Hitchock material out there. Will the demand meet the supply? Anyway, Miller will be seen in the spring in “A Case of You,” a comedy by Justin Long that has a big cast–Peter Dinklage, Sam Rockwell, Brendan Fraser, Vince Vaughn, Evan Rachel Wood, and Busy Phillips, amongst others.
