Paltrow Caught ‘Running With Scissors’


Production Weekly reports that Gwyneth Paltrow has joined Annette Bening in the dramedy Running With Scissors at Sony’s TriStar Pictures.

The film is an adaptation of Augusten Burroughs’ bestselling memoir, and was written and will be directed by “Nip/Tuck” creator Ryan Murphy and is scheduled to start filming on March 7th in Los Angeles.

The film is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a striking resemblance to Santa Claus. So at the age of twelve, Burroughs found himself amidst Victorian squalor living with the doctor’s bizarre family, and befriending a pedophile who resided in the backyard shed. The story of an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, and the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull an electroshock- therapy machine could provide entertainment.
