Katie Holmes is in talks to return to Broadway, Access Hollywood has learned.
The 31-year-old actress, who made her well-received Broadway debut in 2008’s staging of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons,” has been offered the starring role in William Mastrosimone’s “Extremeties,” a rep for Katie told Access.
“Extremities” – a psychological drama — tells the story of a young woman who manages to overtake a would-be rapist in her home, and the drama that ensues as she and her roommates decide what to do with the man.
Producers were reportedly looking to cast Matt Dillon as the would-be rapist, but the “You, Me and Dupree” actor was unavailable to due scheduling conflicts, according to The New York Times.
“Big Love” actress Chloe Sevigny is also being considered for the production, according to the paper.
Though “Extremities” has never been performed on Broadway, the show made its off-Broadway debut at the Westside Theater in 1982, starring Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon. Farrah Fawcett later tackled the off-Broadway role, and then reprised the character in a 1986 film version.
