Benedict Cumberbatch and Olivia Colman to Star in WAR OF THE ROSES Remake

Benedict Cumberbatch Olivia Colman Star In War Of The Roses Remake

Benedict Cumberbatch and Olivia Colman have signed on to lead the reimagining of the 1989 drama "The War of the Roses" for Searchlight Pictures. The film will be directed by Jay Roach ("Bombshell", "Meet the Parents") from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Tony McNamara ("Poor Things") based on the novel by Warren Adler. The 1989 original was directed by Danny DeVito and starred Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner.

The film follows picture-perfect couple Theo (Cumberbatch) and Ivy (Colman), who have successful careers, great kids and an enviable sex life. But underneath the façade of the perfect family is a tinderbox of competition and resentment that’s ignited when Theo's professional dreams come crashing down.

Cumberbatch will produce under his SunnyMarch banner with Leah Clarke and Adam Ackland, who have been in development on the project since 2017. Colman will also produce under her South of the River banner with Ed Sinclair and Tom Carver, along with Roach and Michelle Graham.
