First Look At Isabel Coixet's 'Another Me,' Lines Up New Film With Willem Dafoe, Juliette Binoche & Rinko Kikuchi

23 September 2013 1:16 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The concept of doubles seems to be a major preoccupation of many filmmakers at the moment. Richard Ayoade and Denis Villeneuve brought "The Double" and "Enemy" to Tiff, and now Rome will get their own flavor of twin attraction. "My Life Without Me" and "Elegy" director Isabel Coixet is bringing "Another Me," to the Rome Film Festival. Featuring "Game Of Thrones" star Sophie Turner, aka Sansa Stark, she plays the teenage Fay  whose once perfect life slowly begins to unravel when she suspects that she’s being stalked by a mysterious “double”, who is out to steal not just her identity, but her whole life. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Claire Forlani, Gregg Sulkin, Rhys Ifans, Geraldine Chaplin and Leonar Watling co-star. Even with that film heading to Rome, Coixet isn't stopping. She just wrapped "Learning To Drive" with Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley, and is lining up her next feature. Willem Dafoe, »

Ben Kingsley, Patricia Clarkson ‘Learning To Drive’

13 September 2013 7:20 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Production is underway in New York on Learning To Drive, a film that stars Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson, and reunites them with director Isabel Coixet. They worked together previously on Elegy. The film is based on a Katha Pollitt essay first published in The New Yorker in 2002. Jake Weber, Grace Gummer, and Sarita Choudhury also star. Dana Friedman and Daniel Hammond are producing, and Sarah Kernochan wrote the script. Gabriel Hammond is executive producer. “We’ve been working to make this film for nearly 10 years, but having Sir Ben and Patricia step into these roles makes the wait worthwhile,” said Friedman. Clarkson plays a Manhattanite who takes driving lessons from a Sikh instructor (Kingsley) who is living in Queens under political asylum. Kingsley comes off what for my money was one of the great villain performances in a Marvel superhero movie when he played Mandarin in Iron Man 3. »

Gist: Based on Cathy MacPhail’s young adult novel, Another Me, Coixet’s adaptation, which the director states takes its inspiration from The Ring, concerns identity anxiety in a teenage girl, featuring “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner in her film debut. Coixet, best known for her melancholy dramas like My Life Without Me (2001) and Elegy (2008), appears to be trying something new with her latest, which also features Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Claire Forlani, and Geraldine Chaplin.

Prediction: With a majority of her work premiering in Berlin or Venice, her last title, 2009’s Map of the Sounds of Tokyo premiered in the Main Competition.
