Julianne Moore & Sandra Oh to Star in Lynne Ramsay’s STONE MATTRESS

Julianne Moore Sandra Oh Revenge Thriller Stone Mattress

Oscar winner Julianne Moore ("Still Alice") and Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh ("Killing Eve") have signed on to star in the revenge thriller "Stone Mattress" directed by Lynne Ramsay. The film is based on the short story by Margaret Atwood ("The Handmaid's Tale"). Ramsay and Tom Townend penned the script.

Moore stars as Verna, a 60-year-old retired physiotherapist and twice a widow, who embarks on a luxurious cruise into the magnificent and silently thawing Arctic Northwest Passage, populated by a crowd of privileged influencers and wealthy retirees. On the ship, Verna meets the friendly and charming Grace (Oh), and the seemingly ordinary Bob, an unaccompanied man in his mid-sixties who inherited a family business. Although he doesn't have a fraction of Verna's elegance and wit, Bob tries to seduce her. But he might not be the foolish yet harmless man he initially appears to be, and his presence troubles Verna. As wounds and humiliations from her past resurface, the smooth atmosphere of the cruise will be disturbed by a shocking act.

The film is produced by Oscar winner John Lesher ("Birdman") and Oscar nominee JoAnne Sellar ("There Will Be Blood"). Dylan Weathered ("The Pale Blue Eye") and Daniel Lupi ("Killers Of The Flower Moon", "West Side Story") executive produce. Amazon are already attached to produce and Film 4 and StudioCanal are in final negotiations, with StudioCanal set to launch sales in Cannes.
