EXCLUSIVE: Rebecca Miller is building a strong cast for Maggie’s Plan, the romantic comedy of manners that she will direct based on the script she wrote from a story by Karen Rinaldi. She has just set Julianne Moore to join Greta Gerwig, who plays the central character, a young woman trying to make her way in New York City.
Miller, who scripted and helmed The Ballad Of Jack And Rose and The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee, will shoot this fall in New York. Moneyball’s Rachael Horovitz is producing through Specialty Films with Damon Cardasis, who partners with Miller in her upstart production shingle Round Films. Moore will be one of several major pieces of talent that Miller is adding to the film. Moore is in the midst of playing President Alma Coin in the two final films being adapted from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. She also wrapped Legendary Pictures’ Seventh Son opposite Jeff Bridges. Moore is repped by CAA and Management 360.
