Julianne Moore Reteams With Todd Haynes For ‘Wonderstruck’; Watch 30-Minute ‘Carol’ Talk With Cate Blanchett

Written by on November 16, 2015 


Update: Amazon Studios is in talks to finance, produce and distribute Wonderstuck, The Wrap reports.

“To be an actress and land a leading role in a Todd Haynes film must be a dream come true. With Safe, Far From Heaven, and his five-part miniseries Mildred Pierce, Haynes has proven himself to be one of the very few male directors not only interested in but capable of endowing women protagonists with genuine and far-reaching complexity. In doing so, the performances he’s drawn from his actresses – Julianne Moore in the first two titles and Kate Winslet in the lattermost – have been amongst the very finest of their careers,” we remarked in our review of Carol earlier this year.

It should come with little surprise, but great excitement, then, that Julianne Moore would want to once again re-team with the director. The project in question is Wonderstruck, an adaptation of the graphic novel by Hugo author Brian Selznick, which follows a story that oscillates between a boy in Minnesota circa 1977 dealing with the death of his mother and a girl in New Jersey circa 1927 who ventures to New York to meet her idol, an actress named Lillian Mayhew. While Deadline doesn’t note Moore’s role yet (we’d guess the aforementioned actress), one can find out more information about the book over at Amazon.

Considering Haynes usually takes a few years to develop and complete a new project, we should be thankful this one is gaining steam so quickly, backed by the talented producing team of Christine Vachon, Pam Koffler and John Sloss. As we await the highly-anticipated project, check out a new 30-minute chat with his latest leading lady, Cate Blanchett, below, along with a pair of international posters.



Carol opens in limited release on Friday, November 20th.
