Rachel Weisz and Emily Blunt are sisters

Emily Blunt

Rachel Weisz and Emily Blunt have signed on to play sisters in a new film from director Lynn Shelton.

Details are light, with the flick not even afforded a title let alone a synopsis, but shooting will begin later this month with a planned filming period of just a couple of weeks.

Like Shelton’s previous film Humpday , this new flick will be shot on the fly, with both Weisz and Blunt expected to improvise many of their scenes.

Though the two Brit actresses have had little to no screen experience improvising, there’s no doubting their abilities in front of the camera when it comes to both drama and comedy. With Shelton’s guidance, we’re sure they can rustle up something stellar.

Weisz can next be seen in The Whistleblower , while Blunt recently signed on for Looper , and will be next appear in The Adjustment Bureau , out next year.
