Bryce Dallas Howard in Herbie 2?

Production Weekly reports Bryce Dallas Howard is in negotiations to replace Lindsay Lohan as the female lead in Tennessee Williams' The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond.

Chris Evans, Ellen Burstyn and David Strathairn are also starring in the film slated to film in Louisiana later this year. Independent-film actress Jodie Markell will make her feature directing debut.

In this original, previously undiscovered screenplay by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, a rebellious socialite, Fisher Willow (Howard), is caught up in a world of social conventions, glittering society balls, and her father's greed that she desperately wants to escape. Her love for Jimmy (Evans), a handsome farm hand may be her only way out. Burstyn would play Fisher's mother and Strathairn would play Jimmy's alcoholic father.
