Allison Janney Joins Christina Hendricks in ‘Book Of Common Prayer’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Campbell Scott starts shooting in June

Allison Janney will star opposite Christina Hendricks in Campbell Scott’s feature film version of Joan Didion’s “A Book of Common Prayer.”

Marcia Weiss is producing the indie drama. Filming is set to begin in June.

Variety first reported in March that Hendricks would star.

The novel, published in 1977, centers on two American women. Hendricks will play a character who arrives in a fictional Central American country that is on the verge of revolution and inexplicably imagines it is the place where she will be reunited with her fugitive 19-year-old daughter. Story is told through the eyes of an anthropologist, played by Janney, who is married into the ruling family.

Scott will also appear in the film, as Hendricks’ character’s husband. Hart Bochner will play the missing daughter’s father. Scott previously directed Bochner in “Company Retreat” and appeared with him in John Schlesinger’s “The Innocent.”

Janney was seen most recently in “The Way, Way Back.”  Janney is repped by Gersh and Thruline Entertainment and Bochner is repped by the Arlook Group and Evolution.
