Hendricks for Measure Of A Man

Christina Hendricks is being linked to Measure of A Man

Christina Hendricks is apparently in final negotiations to star in 70s drama Measure Of A Man.

The Mad Men beauty - who has recently been filming Ryan Gosling's directorial debut How To Catch A Monster in which she plays a single mother - will play the mother of a teenage boy whose fierce independence and new career is causing trouble in her marriage.

The coming-of-age drama is based on Robert Lipsyte's young-adult novel One Fat Summer set in the 1970s, Deadline reported.

Super 8's Riley Griffiths will star as a bullied teenager trying to cope with adolescence under the guidance of a reclusive Wall Street executive who gives him a summer job.

The screenplay has been written by A Single Man's David Scearce and will be directed by relative newcomer Terry Loane.

Production is expected to begin this summer in Connecticut and New York.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
