Michael Shannon, Aaron-Taylor Johnson and Armie Hammer also star in the film, which Ford is writing, directing and producing. This film is Ford’s follow-up to his directorial debut “A Single Man” starring Colin Firth.
Focus Features is handling worldwide distribution after winning a bidding war this past May at the Cannes Film Festival.
The movie is an adaptation of Austin Wright’s 1993 novel, “Tony and Susan.” The first of the two-part story follows a woman (Adams) who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, who she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second half revolves around a man (Gyllenhaal) whose family vacation turns violent. Fisher will play Laura Hastings, Tony’s wife.
Fisher most recently wrapped the Fox 2000 pic “Keeping Up with Joneses,” opposite Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot, and can be seen next in Lionsgate’s action comedy “Grimsby,” opposite husband Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong.
Fisher is repped by UTA, Mosaic and Warren Dern. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
