Kate Bosworth is producing and set to star in Lost Girls and Love Hotels, a film adaptation of Catherine Hanrahan's novel. The story revolves around a woman who works in Tokyo as an English specialist, while spending her nights in a much darker world of sex and drugs. After becoming interested in the case of a missing girl, she tries to change her life around.
I usually associate Bosworth with lighter fare like Blue Crush or 21, so I'm curious to see her take on such a weighty and complex female lead. She also has director Jean-Marc Vallee in her corner, who is just coming off working on The Young Victoria, so it seems that she'll be in capable hands.
Are you familiar with Hanrahan's book? Do you think Bosworth is a good fit for the film?
