Camilla Belle gets FREAKY DEAKY

Camilla Belle (10,000 B.C.From Prada to Nada) has been cast in the big screen adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s Freaky Deaky.

The film takes place in Detroit and focuses on a bomb-making ex-couple with radical politics who reunite for a score worth millions, while a cop with bomb squad experience tries to take them down.

This has been a long gestating project in Hollywood. At one time,  Quentin Tarantino was going to produce the film. Then at another time Kurt Russell was attached to star. The project also had Richard Brooks, Monte Hellman and Jim McBride lensing the pic at various stages of development.
Freaky Deaky finally gained traction again when William H. Macy signed on to star. A number of actors are also looking at the film. Sam Rockwell and Hayden Christensen were rumored to star, but their representatives have confirmed to The Playlist that they will no be starring. Last we heard, Charles Matthau (son of Walther Watthau) was set to direct. 
This sounds like a pretty cool story and I love Macy. Camilla Belle is decent, but this will be her biggest role to date.
