Naomi Watts Calls Bening ‘Mommy’

Annette Bening seems to have found her niche.

After Fourteen Women, The Women, and A Woman of No Importance,  she’s now signed on to star in Mother and Child, alongside Naomi Watts

The film follows two women — one (Bening) who gave up her daughter (Watts) 35 years earlier and an African-American ( Kerry Washington) who is looking to adopt. Shareeka Epps (Half Nelson) rounds out the cast. 

Directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Carnivale, Six Feet Under and Anne Hathaway‘s new thriller, Passengers), the film is slated to begin in LA in the early part of 2009, Variety reports.
