A new French poster have landed online for Liv Ullmann’s first film as a director in more than a decade, Miss Julie. An adaptation of August Strindberg’s classic 1888 Swedish battle-of-the-sexes play, ‘Miss Julie’ is led by Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton.

Set on Midsummer’s Eve in a large country house, ‘Miss Julie’ details a battle of both sexes and classes, revolving around the eponymous daughter (Jessica Chastain) of a wealthy landowner, and her flirtation with and seduction of her father’s valet (Colin Farrell), a power struggle that has tragic consequences. The house’s cook and valet’s lover (Samantha Morton) observes the tryst as it unfolds.

No release date has yet been set, but MISS JULIE is expected to be released sometime later this year, assumedly in time for the winter awards season.

The Film Stage has published today a set of new images of Jessica and Colin Farrel on upcoming Miss Julie, as well a (beautiful) poster.

Taking place at a large country estate in Britain over the course of one 1880s midsummer night, Miss Julie explores the brutal, flirtatious power struggle between Julie and John – a young aristocratic woman and her father’s valet.

She is all hauteur longing for abasement; he, polished but coarse. The two of them held together by mutual loathing and attraction. At turns seductive and tender, savage and bullying, their story builds inevitably to a mad, impulsive tryst. Plans are made in desperation, a vision of a life together – unsure if the morning light then brings hope or hopelessness, Julie and John find their escape in an act that is as sublime and horrific as anything in Greek tragedy.

Liv Ullman’s Miss Julie will skillfully weave this great original story of the battle between the sexes and the classes.

Miss Julie is expected to premiere in the fall and is seeking U.S. distribution.

The first set pictures and stills from Liv Ullmann’s upcoming stage-to-screen adaptation of August Stringberg’s Miss Julie have just been leaked by ScreenDaily, showcasing film stars Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell in full costume and in action. Shooting on the film recently wrapped in Nortern Ireland, with Ullmann directing from her own script.

No release date has yet been set, but MISS JULIE is expected to be released sometime later this year, certainly in time for the winter awards season.

Chastain was “first choice” as Miss Julie. She signed on prior to starring in Zero Dark Thirty, swiftly followed by Morton. “If you’re a young actress and serious about your craft, the chance to work with Liv Ullmann doesn’t come along too often,” says Dungey. Farrell was the last piece of casting, coming on board at the start of 2013. “These actors are sensational,” says Ullmann. “You will see Colin like I’ve never seen him, and I’ve seen him really good.”

Norwegian director Liv Ullman will begin shooting a new €4.3m film adaptation of the Swedish play ‘Miss Julie’ at Castle Coole in Co Fermanagh this month, funded by the Irish Film Board and Northern Ireland Screen, starring Colin Farrell and two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain.

The film is an Irish/Norwegian/English co-production, produced by Tristan Orpen Lynch of Dublin-based Subotica, Maipo Films in Norway, and Apocalypse Films in London.

Based on the 1888 play by August Strindberg, ‘Miss Julie’ follows attempts by an aristocrat’s daughter to encourage her father’s valet to seduce her – in an examination of inter-class divisions and sexuality.

Fresh from her Oscar nomination for Best Actress for ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ – in which she played the CIA agent who dedicated her career to relentlessly hunting Osama Bin Laden- Jessica Chastain will star in the title role of the daughter of an Anglo-Irish aristocrat.

Colin Farrell will co-star as the valet, engaged to an Irish cook played by Samantha Morton, with the story unfolding over a midsummer’s night in Fermanagh in 1890 rather than the original setting of Sweden.
