Date: 4th September 2020
Kristin Scott Thomas, Daisy Ridley and Nina Hoss will star in writer-director Jane Anderson's "Women in the Castle."
Adapted by Anderson from Jessica Shattuck's 2017 New York Times bestseller, the film, set in the ruins of WW2 Germany, follows three women, bound by their past and clinging to each other for a future, who must grapple with the realities of liberation from the Nazis, and face the consequences of decisions they cannot undo.
Anderson, who will adapt and direct, previously adapted Meg Wolitzer’s 2017 drama The Wife, the box office breakout which scored Oscar and BAFTA nominations and a Golden Globe win for Glenn Close. The U.S. screenwriter also won two Emmys for her HBO mini-series Olive Kitteridge, starring Frances McDormand, and was DGA-nominated as writer-director of HBO's Normal, starring Jessica Lange and Tom Wilkinson.
The film is scheduled to begin shooting in early 2021 in eastern Europe.
Ridley will next be seen in Chaos Walking, which should finally arrive next year. Scott Thomas has Ben Wheatley's Rebecca headed our way next month, while Hoss will be seen in My Little Sister and TV series Shadowplay.
