With Stephen Frears at the helm, Rebecca Hall and Bruce Willis are set to star in the indie flick, Lay the Favorite, which is based upon the life of Beth Raymer, who began as a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas and went on to become a professional gambler. Upon falling in love though, Raymer began to revaluate her life and her chosen profession.
