8 May 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A press release sent out has announced that Nichols is attached to direct a film called Loving, starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga, based on the couple behind the seminal 1967 civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia. Production is already slated to start shooting in September later this year in Virginia, meaning this is definitely next for Jeff Nichols, and Warner Bros is likely going to push back Midnight Special until after he finishes all the major work on this film. "I was struck by the simplicity of the Loving's story, and I hope to make this a painfully beautiful film," Nichols comments. Sounds good. Richard and Mildred Loving were married in June of 1958.

Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga to Lead Mud Director Jeff Nichols’ Loving

8 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Jeff Nichols made a big splash with his first three films, Shotgun Stories, Taking Shelter, and 2012’s Mud, which in turn led to his first studio picture, the upcoming Warner Bros. sci-fi pic Midnight Special. However, instead of going even bigger for his next film after his studio debut, it appears that Nichols is going back to the world of indies. Per Deadline, Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga have signed on to lead the drama Loving, which Nichols wrote and will direct for a September start in Virginia. Inspired by Nancy Buirski’s documentary The Loving Story, Nichols’ film is based on the 1967 civil rights case Loving vs. Virginia, which was borne out of an interracial couple being sentenced to a year in prison simply because of their marriage.
