Bruhl In Talks to Star Opposite Helen Mirren in “Woman in Gold”

Daniel Bruhl is in talks to take on a golden role…

The 35-year-old half-Spanish actor, who earned critical acclaim and his first SAG Awards nomination for his role in Ron Howard’s Rush, is negotiating with The Weinstein Company to join Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds in Woman in Gold.

The fact-based story, which will be directed by Simon Curtis, will star Mirren as real-life heroine Maria Altmann, a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were pilfered from her family during wartime.

Reynolds will play the attorney who took the case despite knowing little about art, and Bruhl will play his adversary.

The Woman in Gold script was written by Alexi Kay Campbell.

Bruhl most recently wrapped the Anton Corbjin-directed A Most Wanted Man.
