Kate Winslet is looking to star in Jason Reitman’s new feature “Labor Day” for Indian Paintbrush and Right Of Way says The Hollywood Reporter.
An adaptation of the Joyce Maynard novel, Winslet will play a single mother of an awkward and isolated young son who takes in a stranger.
He turns out to be an escaped convict and ends up teaches the boy life lessons, while she falls in love with him over the course of Labor Day Weekend.
Josh Brolin is already committed to also star in the project. Shooting kicks off sometime next year.
