I keep seeing this as Winter's Bone, and then get confused when I read the thread.
I did the same thing last night, and just passed by the thread. It wasn't until this morning when I read the news on ComingSoon.com, that I thought perhaps I should go back and check what I'd quickly glossed over.

What I want to know is how they know there are front-runners for leads in Winter's Tale period. I haven't heard a single bit of news on this since it was announced.
Crowe's involvement in "Les Miserables" may end his participation in several other high-profile projects scheduled to shoot around the same time. Relativity was interested in the actor for one of the starring roles in "Out of the Furnace," and he was also a front-runner for one of the male leads in Akiva Goldsman's "Winter's Tale," but both projects are expected to shoot around the same time as "Les Miserables."

I'm glad Russell Crowe is out of the running for a part.
And this really should be a mini-series (HBO, AMC, anyone? Anyone?).

I suppose by cutting out a ton of really good side stories and characters.

Writer-director Akiva Goldsman is trying to move forward on his passion project Winter's Tale, a period reincarnation story that is set up at Warner Bros. Chemistry reads involving Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Marvel's Thor) and Benjamin Walker (the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) are scheduled for this weekend as all are said to be in the mix for the male role of a criminal on the run. For the female part of a terminally ill woman, the list includes Bella Heathcote (on screen currently in In Time), Elizabeth Olsen, Gabriele Wilde (Three Musketeers) and Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method). Russell Crowe is loosely attached as the villain, although the entire project may hinge on it finding a third-party financier.

Is it? It's been awhile since I read the novel, but I don't remember that angle in there.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) had been trying to get his directing debut off the ground for years: An adaptation of Mark Helprin's 1983 magical-realism novel Winter's Tale. Vulture has learned that things finally seem to be moving ahead on the stalled project at Warner Bros. after, our spies say, Goldsman "called in every favor he had" and landed Russell Crowe and Will Smith, both stars of his previous work, in supporting roles.
Set in both nineteenth-century and present-day Manhattan, Winter's Tale is about a petty thief who falls in love with the dying girl who inhabits the house he’s just burgled and the gangster boss bent on killing him. (Oh, and did we mention there’s also a white, flying horse?) We hear Crowe is in negotiations to play Pearly Soames, the gangster boss, while Smith would appear in the film as a judge. The lead roles of the thief and the little girl still have not been cast.
The film had been languishing at Warner over financial issues — as you might expect with a book that features an angelic white horse that can actually jump five New York City blocks at one go — but we now hear that between Goldsman shaving some $20 million off the original budget and landing both Crowe and Smith, the film is likely to take flight (just like a flying horse!) and begin shooting as early as September or October of this year.

reports that Farrell has yet to enter negotiations for the role which could prevent him from landing the part; apparently, Farrell is seeking a sizable paycheck due in part to his summer release reboot Total Recall, which is reportedly picking up steam. If his involvement falls through, the studio has previously looked at a number of young leads, including: Benjamin Walker, Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, Aaron Johnson, Garrett Hedlund and Liam Hemsworth.

Nothing else new really, except that it is set to begin filming at the end of October with plans to film through the winter.

I'm hoping Marie Saint is Mrs. Gamely.
