Jennifer Connelly joins Cheaters

In a change from the more serious roles we’ve come to expect from Ms Connelly ( Blood Diamond, A Beautiful Mind ), it’s rumoured that she’s being considered for the role of Vince Vaughn’s wife in relationship comedy Cheaters .

She might not be better known for her comedies – unless you count Labyrinth (but technically most of the laughs were provided by a bunch of prosthetic puppets – either that or David Bowie’s mullet) – but with Ron Howard at the helm, the project already appears to have potential.

And as if the collaboration of Howard and Connelly wasn’t enough of an 80s throwback for you - they’ve even cast Winona Ryder too! Hurrah!
