Eva Mendes has signed up to star in the feature debut of director Béatrice Leterrier – the wife of Clash of The Titans director Louis.

Though her husband is best known for big budget action films, Béatrice’s first feature will be something completely different.

A dramatic comedy entitled Wrecking Ball , it follows a Christmas family reunion that stirs up memories of a tragic event from 20 years ago.

Mendes will reportedly play the mother of a five-year-old girl who may hold the key to the family’s fate.

It’ll be a shake-up to Mendes’ usual routine as a film’s token sexy young thing, and considering she’s the only cast member to have signed on yet, could serve as an indication of her growing pulling power as a Hollywood actress.
