Rooney Mara (“The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”) has committed to star in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Side Effects” for Open Road Films says Deadline.
Mara replaces Blake Lively as a troubled, depressed and often medicated woman who gets into a relationship with another doctor (Jude Law).
Her intake is to help her deal with the anxiety surrounding the pending release of her husband (Channing Tatum) from prison. Catherine Zeta-Jones also stars.
Scott Z. Burns wrote the script while Greg Jacobs and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are producing. Shooting begins in April.
