Rooney Mara has had a busy week, as she’s busy making Steven Soderbergh’s The Bitter Pill and yet has had time to attach herself to three other movies that we’ve heard about in the last few days. The latest of these is Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, which Deadline reports also has Ben Foster and Casey Affleck on board for writer-director David Lowery.
The project is an expansion of Lowery’s short film, which debuted at Sundance earlier this year. The short follows a 1970s outlaw who escapes from a Texas prison and sets out in search of his wife and daughter. It isn’t clear which roles the actors will portray.
David Lowery will direct from his own screenplay. Production is scheduled to take place this summer in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It’s not clear how Mara will fit this in, as she already has several other summer shoots planned.
