The 34-year-old actress will head up her first feature film with the Warner Independent Pictures drama in which Bacon, who is currently in negotiations for the film, stars as a train operator thrust into an emotional situation, the Hollywood Reporter said.
The younger Eastwood, who posed for Playboy in 2003, has had roles in the films "Black and White" and "Breakfast of Champions," while also teaming with her father in his directorial turn in 1997's "Absolute Power."
The film, which will be supported by Clint Eastwood's Malpaso Productions, follows a train operator whose family is forced into psychological collision with another family when a distraught woman leaves her car and child on a railroad crossing.
The paper said that also in negotiations for the film is actress Marcia Gay Harden, who is being targeted to fill the role of the engineer's wife for the production.
