Is Death Defying Acts on hold?

The lovely and talented Rachel Weisz (who may or may not be related to Houdini) was on Charlie Rose last night where she announced she was pregnant. She also mentioned her next movie project, and it wasn’t the Houdini film DEATH DEFYING ACTS.

This film -- which tells a fictional story of Houdini's passionate relationship with a woman he encounters in Scotland in 1926 -- was announced last year in Variety and said to start production in early ’06. Yet the official IMDb page still shows only one cast member, Guy Pearce, and seven producers! Not an encouraging sign.

Is Death Defying Acts going the way of so many promising Houdini movie projects? If anyone has an update, email me by clicking below.
