It's the first lead role for Holmes since Holmes played Jackie Onassis in the much maligned miniseries The Kennedys, which was recently picked up by ReelzChannel after The History Channel decided not to air the $30 million biopic.

Holmes will portray a 30-year-old woman who starts dating a younger man [Crawford], only to discover she used to babysit for him.

John Poll is set to direct the film for Night & Day Pictures.
