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.”
