Julianne Moore to Star in Todd Haynes’ ‘Wonderstruck’

Julianne Moore will star in the drama “Wonderstruck” with Todd Haynes directing an adaptation of Brian Selznick’s children’s book.

The book tells the intersecting stories of two deaf children — a girl from 1927 and a boy from 1977. The girl turns out to be the boy’s grandmother, and the book ends with the 1977 New York city blackout.

Selznick wrote “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” which was adapted into the 2011 Martin Scorsese film “Hugo.”

Christine Vachon’s Killer Films is producing “Wonderstruck.” Killer and Haynes teamed on “Carol,” starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.

Haynes directed Moore in 2003’s “Far From Heaven,” for which she received one of her five Oscar nominations. She won the best actress Academy Award this year for “Still Alice,” which Killer Films produced.

Moore stars as President Alma Coin in “The Hunger Games — Mockingjay Part 2.” She’s repped by CAA and Management 360.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
