Julianne Moore took home an Oscar this year for Still Alice, while director Todd Haynes could well get one himself in 2016 for the highly-acclaimed Carol. And now, 13 years after they worked together on Far From Heaven, deadline reports that Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes are reuniting for Wonderstruck.
Haynes is adapting the children’s novel that comes from The Invention Of Hugo Cabret’s Brian Selznick. It follows two deaf children, Ben and Rose, who have an intertwined adventure. Ben runs away from his family home in Minnesota in 1977 and heads for New York when his mother dies and a mysterious note arrives at his house. Rose, who is locked up in a house in New Jersey – but in 1927 – also plots an escape to the Big Apple, dreaming of seeing her idol, film actress Lillian Mayhew.
A release date is yet to be announced for Wonderstruck but we can expect production to begin early in the new year.
