Sarah Polley has found her next directing job after her wonderful debut with 'Away From Her' for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Screenplay.
While promoting her genetic horror film 'Splice' at Sundance she has been busy networking for her new film 'Take This Waltz' (slightly clunky title) which is reportedly a romantic triangle drama about a woman who is having an affair (this is slightly speculative, but given it is Polley I would think it is the woman doing the naughty - slightly more dramatic edge).

Not sure what is happening with the financing, but the casting is interesting. Seth Rogen, who is impressing me as an actor is cast (I would guess he is the husband) and the woman who is going to have a busy year with films, Michelle Williams has joined the project. Williams will be pushed for awards for her lead performance in the Sundance raved 'Blue Valentine' and most likely for her supporting performance in Scorsese's 'Shutter Island'.

Keep you eye out for this one. It should start filming in July, and may even be completed in time for the Toronto Film Festival, but will more likely be premiered at Sundance in 2011.
