According to Variety, Susan Sarandon will star in Aussie film Irresistible.

Sarandon has been working on the thriller's script for six months with writer-director Ann Turner (Celia).

She'll play a woman tortured by the fear that her husband's co-worker is trying to steal him, their children and her life.

Sam Neill plays her spouse, and English thesp Emily Blunt (My Summer of Love) is the co-worker. Bud Tingwell and Georgie Parker have supporting roles. Producers are David Parker and Tatiana Kennedy.

Financing has been completed after earlier plans to make it as a co-production with the U.K. fell through, and it's due to roll in Melbourne mid-March.
