According to Variety, Catherine Zeta-Jones will star in the American remake of romantic comedy-drama Mostly Martha for Castle Rock Entertainment, with Scott Hicks set to direct.

Scribe Carol Fuchs adapted the screenplay from the 2001 German feature "Bella Martha," written and directed by Sandra Nettlebeck. Story centers on an obsessive and controlling chef whose solitary life is turned upside down when she assumes guardianship of her young niece and a new cook arrives at the restaurant where she works.
