Laura Linney Joins Psychological Thriller ‘The Dinner’

Laura Linney is in talks to star in the psychological thriller “The Dinner,” with Oren Moverman directing from his own script.

Cotty Chubb will produce “The Dinner” via his ChubbCo shingle. Eva Maria Daniels and Olga Segura will exec produce.

The story is based on Herman Koch’s novel, first published in 2009 in Holland and since translated into dozens of languages. Set at a dinner in Amsterdam, the story revolves around two brothers, one running for prime minister of the Netherlands, who must deal with their teenage sons having committed a violent crime.

Cate Blanchett was rumored to be attached to direct earlier this year.

The novel was adapted in 2013 by Menno Meyjes as a Dutch drama, which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was also the basis of a 2014 Italian drama directed by Ivano De Matteo and screened at Venice International Film Festival. It won the Europa Cinemas Label as best European film.

Linney currently stars opposite Ian McKellen in “Mr. Holmes.” She will be seen next in “Genius” with Colin Firth, Jude Law and Nicole Kidman, as well as alongside Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood’s “Sully.”

She is repped by ICM Partners, Brillstein Entertainment and Morris Yorn. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
