Well, Iron Woman, really. You know how every year, one or two performers seem to turn up in virtually every movie — like Joseph Gordon-Levitt last year, and Jessica Chastain the year before? This year, it’s going to be Julianne Moore, who’s also currently scheduled to pull off the impressive trifecta of having three movies come out on the same day. (Of course, one or more of them will probably move — such is the ever-shifting nature of movie scheduling — but it’s fun to think of October 18 being Julianne Moore Day at the multiplexes.) Here’s what she’s got coming in 2013 . . . for now:
“What Maisie Knew.” A contemporary take on the Henry James novel, in which Moore plays a rock star less interested in being a mother than in keeping her daughter away from her ex-husband. (Opens May 24).
“Carrie.” Kimberly Peirce’s re-visioning of the Stephen King novel, in which Moore will play the title character’s fanatical mother. (Oct. 18)
“The Seventh Son.” Family fantasy/adventure, based on the book by Joseph Delaney; Moore plays a witch named Mother Malkin. (Oct. 18)
“Don Jon.” Speaking of Gordon-Levitt — this is his writing/directing debut. (Oct. 18)
“Non-Stop.” An airline thriller, in which Moore stars opposite Liam Neeson. (tbd 2013)
“The English Teacher.” Moore plays the title role in this indie drama, directed by Craig Zisk. (tbd 2013)
I still miss her as Nancy Donovan on “30 Rock,” though.
