Julianne Moore will reunite with her Far From Heaven director Todd Haynes for Wonderstruck, the adaptation of the children’s book by Brian Selznick.
The book, part prose, part black and white illustrations, tells a story of two kids, both deaf, from different time periods, one from 1927, one from 1977, who run away to New York. Despite the chasm of decades, they are connected by a mystery waiting to be solved.
Selznick, whose book The Invention of Hugo Cabret was adapted into the 2011 Martin Scorsese film Hugo, wrote the script.
Killer Films, which produced Hayne’s most recent picture, the lesbian drama Carol that stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, is also producing Wonderstruck.
Moore received one of her four Oscar nominations for her performance in Far From Heaven. The actress will be next seen in The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part 2.
