Bridges is to play an obsessed virtuoso violinist who gets a life-threatening illness and has to return to his estranged wife, played by Lane. The indie pic from Bankside Films and EMJAG Productions is based on a script by Stuart Blumberg, who also co-wrote the screenplay for The Kids Are All Alright, the Julianne Moore and Annette Bening-starrer, with director Lisa Cholodenko.
The Morano project marks the first film from Bankside as it moves into production from its origins as an international distribution and financing company. Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, David Schiff, Phil Hunt and Compton Ross will share producer credits.
Hilary Davis, Stephen Keliher and Patrick Howson will executive produce. CAA, WME and Bankside Films will represent domestic rights, with Bankside handling international sales.
Morano, who directed three episodes of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale for Hulu, is also helming I Think We’re Alone Now, an apocalyptic thriller starring Elle Fanning and Peter Dinklage.
Morano directed Meadowland, which debuted at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and starred Olivia Wilde, Luke Wilson and Giovanni Ribisi. She is repped by WME.
Diane Lane, who stars in the upcoming Paris Can Wait, is repped by UTA; Bridges is repped by CAA and MGMT Entertainment.
