British comedy/drama MISSING YOU ALREADY nabs director Catherine Hardwicke and actress Rachel Weisz who will star opposite Toni Collette. The story follows Weisz and Collette, a pair of lifelong best friends whose relationship is torn to bits when one becomes pregnant and the other extremely sick. Hardwicke is replacing Paul Andrew Williams who co-wrote the script and was set to direct but dropped out of the project.
Hardwicke is probably best known as the director of “Twilight,” but don’t hold that against her. She has also helmed 2011’s “Red Riding Hood” and has a bunch of films in development including “Diamond” and “The Age of Miracles.” Oscar winner Weisz is known for her past roles in “The Mummy” and “The Constant Gardner.” Currently, she’s filming “The Lobster” opposite Colin Farrell and John C. Reilly.
