Well, the job offers are flying in for Slumdog's Freida Pinto. First she was nabbed by Woody Allen and now she's been confirmed as Julian Schnabel's (director of The Diving Bell and The Butterfly) new muse (not to worry Dev, they might give you a cameo on Skins… assuming it's commissioned for a fourth series).
Variety reports that the picture, entitled Miral, is: "an adaptation of Italo-Palestinian Rula Jebreal's book about Hind Husseini, who founded an orphanage in Jerusalem in the wake of the 1948 partition of Palestine and the creation of the state of Israel. Schnabel wrote the screenplay." He also plans to shoot the film entirely in Israel and Palestine.
