Simon Curtis is set to join forces once again with BBC Films, the British public broadcaster’s movie unit, to direct Woman In Gold, starring Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Bruhl. Shooting this month in the U.K., Mirren will play real-life heroine Maria Altmann, a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to retrieve several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen from her family during WWII.
