Given that Chilean director Sebastián Lelio's (Gloria) English language debut Disobedience already has Rachel Weisz (The Fountain) aboard to produce and star. Now news arrives via Screen International that Rachel McAdams (About Time) is set to star alongside her.
The film will adapt Naomi Alderman's tome follows Ronit, the estranged daughter of a rabbi, who heads home to the Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood she grew up in London when her father dies. Her arrival stirs up the local community.
Lelio will have the cameras rolling this winter in London and has already adapted the script alongside Ida (2013) co-writer Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Film4 are providing the backing to get this one made.
McAdams is currently on our screens in Scott Derrickson's (Sinister) Doctor Strange, with Weisz also on our screens now in Derek Cianfrance's (Blue Valentine) The Light Between Oceans.
