Actor Rachel Weisz is all set to star in The Railway Man alongside Colin Firth.

Contactmusic.com reports that Weisz will take on the role of Patricia 'Patti' Wallace, the second wife of Colin's character Eric Lomax.

Eric is a lieutenant in the Royal Corp of Signals who is captured by the Japanese army in Singapore during World War II.

The real life story is based on former army officer Eric's book which details his experiences as a prisoner of war, and how he set out decades later to track down his tormentors and exact some revenge.
