In the upcoming, Case 39, Renée Zellweger finds herself light years from those cozy feel good movies she has appeared in recently. In Case 39 she plays Emily Jenkins, a social who manages to save a 10-year-old girl (Jodelle Ferland), from being brutally killed by her own parents. She decides to take the girl in, until a proper foster family, is found.
Now, as Emily spends time with the girl, she starts to realize that she isn’t that innocent, as she appears to be, and soon Emily and the ones around the girl, finds themselves in a very dangerous situation.
Case 39 was first to be released in the US on February 8, 2008, but that date has changed a couple of times since then. However, the new release date, and hopefully the last, is set to January 01, 2010.
