Katie Holmes is set to deal another blow to soon to be ex-hubby Tom Cruise by co-writing and starring in a movie in which she'll play a single mum, a role uncannilly resembling her own personal situation, if she gains custody of daughter Suri.
According to The Sun, Katie, 33, will begin filming on 'Molly' next week. It promises to be uncomfortable viewing for Cruise, as she'll star as a single mum with a young daughter, and is even filming in New York where she's recently moved with Suri.
Katie certainly wants to put her marriage behind her as straight after she starts filming a romcom with Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford.
The shock divorce battle between Cruise and Holmes has left the world speculating about the facts of the case, with rumours swirling that Cruise's religion Scientiology, which opponents describe as a cult, had a role in the split.
However in recent days the couple are reportedly closer to a settlement, denying the world the chance to see exactly what turned the TomKat marriage sour.
What effect Katie's choice of work after her split will have on attempts by the pair to achieve an amicable settlement is unknown.
