NEW YORK — Jeanne Tripplehorn will play the female lead in “Relative Values,” a feature adaptation of a Noel Coward comedy starring Billy Baldwin, Julie Andrews, Colin Firth, Stephen Fry, Edward Atherton and Sophie Thompson. The film, directed by Eric Styles (“Dreaming of Joseph Lees”), has just begun filming on the Isle of Mann. Chris Milburn is producing.
The film is a comedy of manners that follows the events surrounding an aristocratic English family after the son returns home with his fiancee, an American movie star (Tripplehorn).
Tripplehorn, whose credits include “The Firm” and “Basic Instinct,” will next be seen opposite Hugh Grant in Castle Rock’s “Mickey Blue Eyes,” which opens Friday. She recently wrapped the John Duigan-directed “Paranoia” and “Abbie!,” the Robert Greenwald-directed biopic of 1960s activist Abbie Hoffman, which co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Janeane Garofalo, Kevin Pollak and Kevin Corrigan.
Tripplehorn is agented by William Morris and managed by Cynthia Pett-Dante and Danny Sussman of Brillstein-Grey.
