Cameron Diaz is in final negotiations to join the cast of New Line Cinema’s ‘My Sister’s Keeper.’
Variety reports that Nick Cassavetes will direct the adaptation of Jodi Picoult’s novel from a script by Jeremy Leven.
Diaz will play a former defence lawyer who returns to the courtroom in order to defend herself and her husband when they are sued by their own teenage daughter for emancipation. The girl was conceived as a genetic match with the hope she could help her cancer-suffering sister.
Filming is set to begin early next year.
