MINNIE DRIVER is set to star in a film with rising star PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN.

Speaking at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards last night, the British beauty revealed her involvement in new movie OWNING MALONEY with the BOOGIE NIGHTS actor. She says, "I just signed the deal, like, yesterday," she told us. "It's called Owning Maloney. It's about compulsive gambling. I play Brenda the bank teller: a normal, ordinary girl with a bad habit." (KW/E/RP)
