Anne Heche may still have a reputation for being slightly insane, but she seems to have calmed down a lot since the post-Ellen Degeneres split-up period. Indeed with roles in the likes of Cedar Rapids, Rampart, That’s What She Said and TV’s Hung, she’s been in the spotlight more than she has at any time since the late 90s.
Now she’s got another role, as Variety reports she’s set to join Colin Firth and Emily Blunt in the dark comedy, Arthur Newman, Golf Pro. Firth stars as a man who hates his job and is despised by his family. Feeling he missed his shot at living the dream, he decides to fake his own death and create a new identity. He meets a young woman (Emily Blunt) with her own troubled past, and the duo start breaking into empty homes to pose as the absent owners. Heche will play Colin Firth’s girlfriend, who treats him terribly.
Arthur Newman, Golf Pro will begin production this month in North Carolina, with commercials helmer Dante Ariola directing from a script by Becky Johnston.
