Chris Meloni To Star In ‘White Bird In A Blizzard’

EXCLUSIVE: Christopher Meloni is in negotiations to play the male lead in White Bird In A Blizzard to be directed by Gregg Araki. He joins Shailene Woodley (The Descendants), Eva Green (Casino Royale), Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious), who are already attached. Araki wrote the script, about a young woman whose life is upended when her mother disappears.

After wrapping a long run in Law & Order: SVU, Meloni has gotten busier on the feature front. Next year, he will be seen in Jackie Robinson-Branch Rickey drama 42, the Superman reboot Man Of Steel, and Small Time. He just wrapped production on They Came Together, which will be released in 2014.

Meloni is represented by Gersh and Industry Enertainment’s Bill Butler.
