One of my worst nightmares was realized when watching Maria Bello in A History of Violence. I didn't want to believe it, but even hot chicks can have hairy muffs. Yikes!
Thanks to pictures like the one to the right, my crush on her was bruised, but not lost. Bringing the eye candy to the indie drama Rape: A Love Story, Maria Bello will co-star with Abigail Breslin and Samuel L. Jackson.
Maria Bello, Abigail Breslin, Samuel L. Jackson for Rape: A Love Story
Based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel, Rape: A Love Story centers on a mother (Bello) recovering from a brutal gang rape who is stalked by the perpetrators but is protected by a sympathetic cop (Jackson). Breslin will play the woman’s 12-year-old daughter, who witnesses the attack.
I know what you're thinking. Feel good movie of the year. Harold Becker will direct off a script by John Mankiewicz.
Bello has been sticking close to indie of recent, having recently wrapped the dramedy The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. When it comes to Samuel L. Jackson, the actor just launched what looks to be an extended career with Marvel Studios as the character Nick Fury.
