Lucy Lawless, the chakram-wielding "Xena," is circling the Australian comedy feature "Dealing With Donna." If she signs, it would mark her first major commitment to a feature film since her hit TV series began five years ago. Director Richard Turner said
that Lawless, who is based in Auckland, New Zealand, has expressed keen interest in the film, which is described as a sophisticated comedy about two dysfunctional women. Shooting is set to begin in September or October, when "Xena" is in recess.
The film is set to be distributed by Palace Films. A foreign presale is being negotiated by exeutive producer Larry Hirsch of Perth-based Toucan Films. (Blake Murdoch)
