Claire Danes has found love.

"The Mod Squad" and "My So-Called Life" actress has signed on to Danish director Thomas Vinterberg's "It's All About Love" -- the follow-up to his Cannes-winning first feature "The Celebration" in 1999, Daily Variety says.

Penned by Vinterberg, the script story follows a married couple as they try to salvage their relationship. Shooting of the film begins in April.

Danes was previously working on "Flora Plum," a film helmed by Jodie Foster and starring Russell Crowe. The project is currently on hold due to a shoulder injury sustained by Crowe.

RAY OF 'IRON': Actor Ray Park, or better known as Darth Maul in "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace," will personify the title hero in the big screen adaptation of the comic book "Iron Fist," Variety says.

The martial-arts-themed movie follows the life of Far East-bred Danny Rand, who grows up to avenge his parents' death in the United States.

"Iron Fist" is the first project to come out of the joint venture between Artisan Entertainment and Marvel Comics last year.
