There was a time when it was tough to avoid seeing Renée Zellweger at the multiplex, but these days you couldn’t find her if you tried. She hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2010′s My Own Love Song, which despite being Olivier Dahan’s follow-up to La vie en rose flew mostly under the radar. The occasional Bridget Jones’s Baby update aside, her name has seldom cropped up over the past few years.
But now she’s eyeing a return to the big screen, and her plans this time are more ambitious than ever. Zellweger is set to star in and make her directorial debut with 4 1/2 Minutes, a comedy based on the life and comedy of stand-up Dov Davidoff. Johnny Knoxville is attached to play the lead. More after the jump.
