Gwyneth lands first major film role since marriage split


It seems Gwyneth Paltrow is back in the driving seat after her ‘conscious uncoupling’ from hubby Chris Martin, as she lands a very exciting movie role!

The Oscar winner will co-star with 12 Years a Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor in the high-profile remake of the Spanish movie The Secret In Their Eyes, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009.

The crime thriller will be shot this autumn in Boston.

Ejiofor will play a former MI-5 agent who returns to Boston on a joint task force with the FBI, still obsessed by the unsolved murder that continues to haunt him.


Gwyneth has reportedly been lined up to play Irene, who works in the Justice Department.

The movie has an impressive crew attached already, with Billy Ray – the Oscar nominated writer of Captain Phillips and The Hunger Games – set to direct from his own screenplay adapted from Juan José Campanella’s version.
