The Independent reports that actress Rachel Weisz will be back in the UK next spring to film Death Defying Acts, a new film about Houdini. Weisz will play Houdini's mistress in the film.
The paper claims that Houdini "is a long-standing interest of Weisz's, partly motivated by the thought that he was a distant relative - he was born in Hungary as Ehrich Weisz."
Rachel Weisz related to Houdini? There is a bit of a resemblance.
Weisz is best known for her two blockbuster Mummy films, The Mummy (1999) and The Mummy Returns (2001), and can currently been seen in The Constant Gardener.

This poster promotes the escape that was to replace the Water Torture Cell in Houdini's full eveing show in 1927. However, Houdini died before the '27 season and the casket that was to be used in the trick was instead used to carry his body back to New York.
In other poster auction news, a rare French Terror Island poster recently sold for $12,650.
