Mozart and the Whale: According to Variety, Josh Hartnett is set to star, and Rachel Weisz is negotiating to star in Mozart and the Whale, a Ron Bass scripted love story to be directed by Petter Naess, whose "Elling" was nominated for a foreign-language film Oscar in 2001.

Inspired by a 1995 article in the Los Angeles Times, Mozart and the Whale is based on the story of a young couple who have Asperger's syndrome, a kind of autism. Hartnett's character is a math savant who falls in love with a woman who is a music and art savant, played by Weisz. Their talents are offset by an inability to relate to one another, which threatens to undermine their relationship.
