Noah Baumbach's much-anticipated adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections has already locked down an impressive cast — Dianne Wiest and Chris Cooper as the Lamberts, and Ewan McGregor as their middle son Chip. Now comes word that Maggie Gyllenhaal is in early talks to join the project as baby sister Denise, a bisexual chef who gets caught up in a love triangle with her restaurant's investor and his wife. (We can see it!) The same report notes that Rhys Ifans is also considering a role as the Lithuanian crime boss who preys on Chip. A Nanny McPhee 2 reunion! This is shaping up to be something special.
