Jessica Chastain will reunite with Oscar Isaac to star in Scenes From A Marriage, the HBO limited series adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s miniseries. Deal came together after Michelle Williams exited the lead female role over scheduling issues. Limited series comes from Our Boys and The Affair co-creator Hagai Levi, Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res and Endeavor Content.
Levi is writing and directing a series adaptation that re-examines the show’s iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple, played by Isaac and Williams. Ingmar Bergman wrote and directed the original 1973 Swedish miniseries, which starred Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson. Bergman’s teleplay, the story of a disintegration of a marriage, drew on his own experiences, including his relationship with Ullmann.
Levi executive produces with Ellenberg via Media Res, Lars Blomgren (The Bridge), Williams, Isaac, Daniel Bergman, Blair Breard and Amy Herzog. The series is a co-production with Media Res and Endeavor Content, and Isaac and Chastain are also exec producers.
The deal reunites Chastain with Isaac. Classmates at Julliard and longtime friends, they starred together in 2014’s A Most Violent Year. Shooting will begin soon.
As shooting wrapped, the first photos of The Forgiven, starring Jessica Chastain opposite Ralph Fiennes, have emerged. Here’s one of the two of them. Enjoy!

It can come to you when you least expect it, or perhaps when you need it most. It can be felt at once by millions of people around the globe, or alone in the confines of your own home. It can take the form of dance or song, or even a subtle change in style.
For Jessica Chastain, the award-winning actress and producer who has long used her platform for the advancement of women in the film industry, empowerment is the act of wanting to see others succeed.
By connecting with someone who is different from you,” she says in the video, her glimmering all-black watch complimenting her power red lips, “you learn, and you feel part of something bigger than yourself.
