Mortimer Switches Seats with Morton
Emily Mortimer (Match Point; Dear Frankie) will replace Samantha Morton as the female lead on director Brad Anderson's TransSiberian, after Morton bowed out due to an injury. Part of the ceiling in the actress' old London home collapsed just a few days before she was to fly to Lithuania to shoot her scenes. Doctors recommended complete rest. Mortimer will be half of an American couple, with Woody Harrelson, who board a train from China to Moscow. They soon find themselves deep in a web of murder and deception.
