Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman have committed to Snow Cake, according to Production Weekly.

Directed by Marc Evans, the film is being prepared in Canada to start shooting next month.

Snow Cake is a quirky drama set in Wawa, Ontario in the middle of winter. This engaging and original story explores the odd friendship between a high-functioning autistic woman named Linda and Alan, a quite, brooding man traumatized after being involved in a fatal car accident who comes into her life following a personal twist of fate.

Rickman and Weaver co-starred with Tim Allen in Dean Parisot's Galaxy Quest.
