Renée Zellweger replaces Sharon Stone

Oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger has joined the cast of My Own Love Song, the English-language debut for writer/director Olivier Dahan (La Vie En Rose). Zellweger steps in for Sharon Stone (the Basic Instinct films), who recently left the project.

Described as a “road movie”, My Own Love Song will be a love story between a former singer in wheelchair and an injured fireman. The film will start shooting next month and co-stars Forest Whitaker (Street Kings) and Madeline Zima (Showtime’s Californication).

Renée Zellweger will next be seen in the western Appaloosa, rolling out on September 19th in the US and the UK.
