Willis, Hall To “Lay the Favorite”

Bruce Willis and Rebecca Hall are the favorites to play the lead roles in “Lay the Favorite, Take the Dog” for Focus Features reports Deadline.

Based on Beth Raymer’s memoir of the same name, the story centers on Raymer’s relationship with two older men and how they found an edge in the Las Vegas sports gambling system.

“High Fidelity” director Stephen Frears and scribe D.V. DeVincentis will re-team on this project in the same capacities. However neither Willis or Hall are locks as yet and both were linked to other projects earlier this week.
