Diamond Dumps Lohan, Sparkles To Howard

Bryce Dallas Howard is in negotiations to replace Lindsay Lohan as the female lead in Tennessee Williams’ “The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond” reports Production Weekly.

Based on an original, previously undiscovered screenplay by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, a rebellious socialite, Fisher Willow (Howard), is caught up in a world of social conventions, glittering society balls, and her father’s greed that she desperately wants to escape.

Her love for Jimmy (Chris Evans), a handsome farm hand may be her only way out. Ellen Burstyn plays Fisher’s mother and David Strathairn plays Jimmy’s alcoholic father. Indie actress Jodie Markell will make her feature directing debut.
