(FROM VARIETY) ? Marisa Tomei will star opposite Mickey Rourke in Darren Aronofsky‘s upcoming drama The Wrestler.

Aronofsky is helming from a screenplay he wrote with Robert Siegel. Shooting is already underway. Tomei recently co-starred in Sidney Lumet’s Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. When she’s completed work on The Wrestler she’ll move onto a starring role in Top Girls on Broadway. (Variety)
