Catherine Zeta-Jones has caught the acting bug again ... and Steven Soderbergh has the cure.
The "Mask of Zorro" beauty has signed on to join Blake Lively, Channing Tatum and Jude Law in the director's drug-addled thriller, according to Deadline.
"Side Effects" follows a depressed young woman (Lively) who's been taking a large amount of prescription drugs as a way of dealing the anxiety brought on by her husband's (Tatum) impending release from prison. Things get even more dramatic when she embarks on an affair with a doctor (Law).
Zeta-Jones, who previously worked with Soderbergh on "Traffic" and "Ocean's Twelve," will play the role of Dr. Erica Siebert, who we assume is a colleague of Jude Law's character. The film also marks Soderbergh's third collaboration with Channing Tatum, who's currently starring in "Haywire" and will appear in "Magic Mike" this summer.
Catherine Zeta-Jones has actually been rather busy lately, as her latest film, "Lay the Favorite," just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. She's also got "Rock of Ages" set for June 1 and "Playing the Field," co-starring Gerard Butler, set for the already rather over-crowded Dec. 25. She's currently filming the political thriller, "Broken City," co-starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe.
"Side Effects" will commence with production in New York in April.
