Actress Rachel Weisz is currently filming The Light Between Oceans, based on the M.L. Stedman novel of the same title. It’s about a lighthouse keeper (Michael Fassbender, 12 Years a Slave) and his wife who rescue a baby from an adrift rowboat and raise her as their own daughter.

With another Colin (Farrell), Weisz has a role in the forthcoming film “The Lobster,” which is set in a dystopian future where “single people are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days or are transformed into animals and released into the woods.: Weisz is listed as “the short sighted woman.”
