Linney Reads ‘The Nanny Diaries’


Laura Linney has signed on to star alongside Scarlett Johansson in The Nanny Diaries for the Weinstein Co.

The film is a feature adaptation of the bestselling book of the same name by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. The story centers on Annie Braddock (Johansson), a young woman from New Jersey who ends up in the elite culture of Manhattan’s Upper East Side as a nanny for a wealthy family, referred to as simply “the Xs.” Linney will star as the head of the household, Mrs. X, who forces Annie to cater to her every whim.

Robert Pulcini adapted the book for the screen with Shari Springer Berman and will direct the feature which is expected to be shot entirely in New York City.
