Jeremy Irons & Jonathan Rhys Meyers Join ‘Secret Scripture,’ Alison Brie & Adam Scott Are ‘Sleeping With Other People’ & More

Written by on March 21, 2014 

After learning last year that Coriolanus stars Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave were set to reteam on a new film, one that will have them in more prominent roles, we now have a few more additions to the project, an adaptation of Sebastian Barry‘s The Secret Scripture. According to Independent, Jeremy Irons and Jonathan Rhys Meyers have come aboard in the story that follows Chastain and Redgrave playing the character of Roseanne McNulty in younger and older versions, respectively. No word on their roles yet, but with direction by Thaddeus O’Sullivan and a script by Johnny Ferguson (Gangster No. 1), the story follows our main character writing a diary of her earlier years in a Roscommon mental hospital. Production begins this summer.

After her successful dark comedy Bachelorette, word landed last fall that Leslye Headland would reteam once again with producer Will Ferrell for another project. Sleeping With Other People was once set to star Kirsten Dunst, but now THR has news of two cast additions. The trade reports that while Jason Sudeikis is still on board, Alison Brie is in talks to replace Dunst in the film that follows a good-natured womanizer (Sudeikis) who befriends a remorseful serial cheater (Brie). Their platonic relationship reforms their chronic infidelity but sparks an inconvenient romantic attraction to each other.” It’s also reported that Adam Scott would reteam with the director if talks go through, but no word on his role yet.

Lastly, James Ponsoldt recently kicked production off on his The Spectacular Now follow-up, a drama that is based around the life of the late author David Foster Wallace, played by Jason Segel. Coming from a Donald Margulies script, Deadline reports that Ron Livingston has joined the cast of The End of the Tour, taking the role of editor Bob Levin, who oversees reporter David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg). Eisenberg’s character followed Wallace during his 2008 book tour, one that would end in his suicide. If one wants to see Segel’s look on set, it can be found directly below.

Which of the above projects are you most looking forward to?
