The move from Buchwald signals the Oscar-nominated actress’ intention to rev up her thesp career after spending much of the past 5 years in music, making 3 albums and touring the world. She was in WHIP IT last year and has completed work in 4 other films: DUE DATE, SYMPATHY FOR DELICIOUS, BETTY ANNE WATERS, and THE BASTER. She was nominated for an Oscar for CAPE FEAR. Can this career be saved?
