Liv Ullman has cast Jessica Chastain and Samantha Morton in an upcoming film version of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie, Variety reports.
The play, published in 1888, follows the titular Miss Julie, daughter of a Count, as she explores the social world of her servants, and interacts particularly with one named Jean.
Chastain, who recently starred in Zero Dark Thirty, will take on the Julie role with Farrell (Total Recall) playing Jean and Morton (Minority Report) as the house’s cook, Christine.
Oliver Dungey and Teun Hilte are attached to produce.
