Julianne Moore to Star in Nicole Holofcener’s ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Recent Oscar winner Julianne Moore is in negotiations to star in Nicole Holofcener’s “Can You Ever Forgive Me” for Fox Searchlight.

Holofcener is also writing the pic which based on the 2008 memoir by Lee Israel.

Israel was a respected biographer who fell on hard times and turned to counterfeiting the letters of deceased writers and celebrities in order to pay her rent. When the forgeries started to raise suspicion, she turned to stealing the actual letters from library archives and sold them through an ex-con fence she met in a bar, while the FBI was closing in on the scam.

Anne Carey will produce the pic.

Holofcener’s last film was the well-received romantic comedy “Enough Said,” starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini.

The film will be Moore’s first since her best actress Oscar win for “Still Alice.” This year, she will appear in “Hunger Games: Mockingjay— Part 2,” “Maggie’s Plan” and “Freeheld,” with Ellen Page and Steve Carell.

Moore is repped by CAA, Management 360 and United Agents. Holofcener is repped by UTA.
