The Constant Gardener star decided to lighten her workload to enjoy quality time with six-year-old Henry, her only child with her ex-partner, director Darren Aronofsky.
She tells USA Today, "I just wanted to be at home, to be with Henry. I need passion if I'm going to work, a lot of passion. That's how I feel right now. It has to be a situation where I have to do it.
"Henry's dad was filming (new movie) Noah, so I didn't want to be filming at the same time. We just do regular stuff. We go to Tompkins Square Park (in New York City). Henry is into scootering on the street... This city is very friendly to children. You just cab it or bus it or tube it. It's just endless excursions."
Weisz is now married to James Bond star Daniel Craig and they live in New York.
Spike Lee and Robert De Niro are teaming with Showtime to develop a drama series about Manhattan's Alphabet City. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project, titled Alphaville, will be written by John Ridley, with Lee on board to direct the potential pilot.
Alphaville is executive produced by Ridley, Lee, De Niro and his producing partner Jane Rosenthal. Tribeca Prods. will produce.
The ensemble drama, set in the ‘80s, will chronicle Alphabet City's gritty and tumultuous past before it became the gentrified East Village.
Along with its growing bohemian and celebrity population, the neighborhood was plagued by illegal drug activity and violent crime.
Local tensions culminated in the Tompkins Square Park riot of 1988, in which police clashed with anarchists and homeless activists.
