Demi Moore Set for Indie Movies

Demi Moore has booked back-to-back indie films, says today’s Hollywood Reporter. The actress will join Parker Posey to star in Happy Tears from filmmaker Mitchell Lichtenstein. She will then team with Woody Harrelson and Josh Hartnett for Bunraku.

Tears, written and directed by Teeth’s Lichtenstein, follows a woman (Posey) prone to self-aggrandizement who returns to her Wisconsin home to deal with her bitter sister and father.

Moore will play the sister who is fed up with dealing with the hateful father who suffers from a rare form of dementia.

The film is set to begin shooting this month in Philadelphia.

Bunraku, meanwhile, written and directed by Guy Moshe, follows a man (Hartnett) on a revenge quest who finds himself in an even bigger fight than he bargained for, says The Reporter.

The film is set in an original universe a la Sin City and draws from a mixed bag of genres. Moore is set to play the enslaved concubine of a warlord who is forced to marry her captor. Harrelson plays a bartender.

The shoot is scheduled to take place in Europe.

Moore most recently starred alongside Kevin Costner in Mr. Brooks.
