The project will reimagine the original film – which starred Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) and Sidse Babett Knudsen (Westworld) – and feature two female leads, with the story focussing on motherhood and family.
“We are overjoyed to have Bart as a partner in this project that has been a long time labour of love,” said producers Joel Michaels (Terminator Salvation) and Silvio Muraglia (Black Butterfly). “He’s reimagined a brilliant retelling of Susanne Bier’s acclaimed and potent drama. We are further blessed to be working with Julianne Moore who remarkable talent brings depth and sincerity to every role she portrays.”
“Bart has written an emotional powerhouse of a screenplay,” added Alison Thompson and Mark Gooder from Cornerstone Films.
