Jennifer Beals attached to supporting role in the film Facing The Wind
Jennifer will play a supporting role in the true crime film “Facing The Wind”. The movie is based on Julie Salamon’s book “Facing the Wind: A True Story of Tragedy and Reconciliation,” which recounts the story of Bob Rowe, a New York lawyer and model husband who killed his wife and three children in 1978 — leading to his subsequent search for redemption after avoiding a prison sentence by pleading the insanity defense at trial.
Melanie Griffith, Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga and Evan Rachel Wood will star and Joe Berlinger will direct. Farmiga is attached to play Rowe’s first wife, who was killed. Wood plays his second wife, with whom he starts a new life after the trial while Griffith, Jennifer Beals and Rita Willson will play the role of women in a circle of close-knit friends who share the bond of grief and anger about the murders as they confront Rowe’s second wife. Fabrication Films will be selling the $5 million project at Cannes. Production is set to begin later this year in and around New York City.
