Sarah Polley Gets Seth Rogen & Michelle Williams for 'Waltz'

Sarah Polley

While there are plenty of actors turned directors nowadays, you'll be hard pressed to find many actresses who also sit in the director's chair. Jodie Foster comes to mind, and Drew Barrymore recently made the plunge with Whip It, but there's not a strong presence. However, Sarah Polley is one of those rare talents who has not only starred in a variety of films like Go, Dawn of the Dead, and most recently the Sundance selection Splice, but she's shown potential directing Away From Her. Now Deadline Hollywood says Polley has lined up her next project, Take the Waltz, with Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams on board.

Take the Waltz made an appearance onĀ 2009's Black List, and follows a woman who struggles with her infidelities and the realization that she may be addicted to the honeymoon period of her relationships. Williams has recently been making waves at Sundance with her performance in Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine (which Alex enjoyed quite a bit), and it will be quite interesting to see how she matches up with Rogen. Polley is also in the process of casting a third actor who will complete the love triangle that's the focus of the story.

It's not entirely clear if Take the Waltz is a romantic comedy or more of a drama, so this could actually be a change of pace for Rogen in the end who has only dabbled in drama in portions of Judd Apatow's Funny People. Personally, I can't wait wait to see the chemistry between these two with a script from Polley who was nominated for an Oscar when she wrote Away From Her. This is definitely one to keep our eyes on.
