According to The Hollywood Reporter, Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Connelly is in negotiations to join Kate Winslet in Little Children for New Line Cinema.

Todd Field is set to direct the adaptation of the Tom Perrotta novel. Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger are producing the movie, based on a screenplay co-written by Field and Perrotta.

The novel revolves around a group of weird, suburban characters and their relationships with children. There's a bisexual feminist addicted to Internet porn (Winslet), a stay-at-home dad who resists his wife's ambitious plans for him, an uptight supermom who schedules sex with her husband and a pedophile fresh out of prison.
