Oscar, round 2?

Posted By on Wed, Sep 27, 2006 at 8:19 AM

Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon are in final negotiations to star in New Line Cinema's "Rendition," Gavin Hood's follow-up to his Oscar-winning South African feature "Tsotsi."

Written by Kelly Sane, the multilayered story revolves around a CIA analyst based in Cairo who finds his world spinning out of control after he witnesses the interrogation of a foreign national by the Egyptian secret police. Gyllenhaal will play the analyst, while Witherspoon will play the pregnant American wife of the national.
