Michelle Williams is set to reteam with Kelly Reichardt on an untitled indie drama.

The project marks the third time the two have collaborated together, having previously worked on the Western drama “Meek’s Cutoff” and the drama “Wendy and Lucy,” both of which received critical acclaim and accolades from various festivals.

For “Wendy and Lucy,” Williams won best actress at the Toronto Film Festival and a nomination from the Indie Spirit awards, while “Meek’s Cutoff” brought in several honors from various festivals. The hopes are that this pic will bring similar critical praise.

Reichardt is writing and directing. Plot details are unknown at this time.

Williams recently signed on to star opposite Casey Affleck in Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester-by-the-Sea,” but sources say Williams will shoot this film first in the spring, with “Manchester-by-the-Sea” shooting later in the year.

Williams was most recently seen in “Suite Française” alongside Margot Robbie and Ruth Wilson. She is repped by WME and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthall Laviolette Feldman Schenkman and Goodman.

Reichardt most recently directed “Night Moves” with Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. She is repped by UTA.

    Thanks I saw the apology but I had a problem tracking down the producer who apologized but I just found them now and I think you are connected to this somehow. Thanks

    There is no best actress at TIFF. That said, they’re always good together.

  3. Cindy says:

    She wasn’t “recently seen” in Suite Francaise, the movie wasn’t released yet.

  4. Details please says:

    What happened to ‘Suite Francaise’? It never opened!
