Michelle Williams Joins Julianne Moore in AFTER THE WEDDING Remake

Michelle Williams ("Manchester by the Sea") is set to star in a remake of the 2006 Danish drama "After the Wedding". That film was directed by Susanne Bier, starred Mads Mikkelsen and Sidse Babett Knudsen, and was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

The remake follows the director of an Indian orphanage on the verge of bankruptcy, who discovers that her organization is in contention to receive a large charitable donation from a wealthy American businesswoman, forcing her to travel to New York City, where she is confronted by a past she tried to forget. Williams will star as the orphanage owner, and Julianne Moore is set to play the rich businesswoman who is more than she seems.

The film will be directed by Bart Freundlich ("Mozart in the Jungle") from his own script, and produced by Joel Michaels ("Terminator Salvation") and Silvio Muraglia ("All Roads Lead to Rome"). Production is scheduled to begin next month.

Williams can also be seen in the Amy Schumer comedy "I Feel Pretty" and the upcoming comic book adaptation "Venom" starring Tom Hardy.
