The Hollywood beauty will play a woman with wings who is under the control of a ruthless gangster and is eventually rescued by Rourke’s character.
Fox confirmed the news to MTV, saying, “I’m doing a movie called Passion Play with Mickey Rourke. There is a love story there, it’s clearly not going to be a typical one. My character is basically a circus freak, she lives in a cage and she has wings. She’s not an angel, but she has these giant wings that grow out of her back. She’s a freak and she’s on display.”
The movie has been written by screenwriter Mitch Glazer, famed for penning 1988 Bill Murray film Scrooged, who will also make his directing debut on Passion Play.
