John Turturro, Michael Cera, Brad Garrett, Holland Taylor, and newcomer Caren Pistorius have joined Julianne Moore in FilmNation’s re-imagining of Sebastian Lelio’s critically acclaimed 2013 film “Gloria.”

The story follows Gloria (Moore), a free-spirited woman in her 50s. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults in Los Angeles. Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Arnold (Turturro). Their intense passion, to which she gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair, until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that now, surprisingly, she can shine brighter than ever.

Lelio will direct and also penned the adaptation of the script for the new film, which is currently in production. A first look photo was also released to Variety, which can be seen below.

Juan de Dios Larraín, who produced the original film, is producing the new project. The film is also being produced by his partner, director Pablo Larrain. Moore, Ben Browning, Shea Kammer, and Rocio Jadue will exec produce.

Turturro is repped by ICM Partners; Garrett is repped by UTA and Management 360; Taylor is repped by Gersh; Cera is repped by ICM Partners and Thruline Entertainment; and Pistorius is repped by CAA and RGM Artists.
