The Hollywood Reporter just reported that Thaddeus O’Sullivan has come aboard to direct The Secret Scripture, a drama which has Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave attached to star.

The Ireland-centric story centers on a 100-year old woman who has been in a mental hospital since World War Two and with the facility closing, a psychiatrist tries to piece together why the woman is there, not knowing she has been hiding a diary under the floorboards.

Chastain and Redgrave are to play younger and older versions of the woman, detailing the scars the Presbyterian woman suffered during Ireland’s civil war and her harsh abuse by a priest.
