Rebecca Mader (ABC’s “Lost”) is in final negotiations for the lead female role in Men Who Stare at Goats, the George Clooney- and Grant Heslov-produced adaptation of the book by Jon Ronson. Heslov is directing.
“Goats” is set in Iraq and centers on Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor), a desperate reporter who stumbles upon the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (Clooney), who claims to be a former secret U.S. military psychic soldier who was reactivated after 9/11.
Mader will play McGregor’s wife.
Stephen Lang also joins the cast that includes Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges, playing an intelligence officer.
