Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore will headline the upcoming film May December from acclaimed director Todd Haynes. The screenplay was written by Samy Burch with the story by Burch and Alex Mechanik.
May December will see the Oscar-winning actresses team up to tell the story of a Hollywood actress, played by Natalie Portman, who travels to the picturesque coast of Maine to study the real-life woman (Julianne Moore) she is set to play in a film. Moore's character previously hit headlines for marrying a man 23 years younger than her.
"What so appealed to me about Samy Burch's exceptional script was how it navigated potentially volatile subject matter with a kind of observational patience that allowed the characters in the story to be explored with uncommon subtlety", Haynes said in a statement.
Filming is set to get underway in 2022.
