Julianne Moore will star as iconic feminist activist Gloria Steinem in ‘Glorias’, the June Pictures film that Julie Taymor will direct. Playwright Sarah Ruhl will be writing the coming of age story, based on Steinem’s bestselling memoir. It will be interesting to see an Oscar-winning actress to anchor the film about Steinem’s growth from a reluctant spokesperson of a movement, into a galvanizing symbol for equality, with a focus on the encounters along the road that helped shaped her.
Lulu Wilson, who was recently seen in Netflix’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House‘ and HBO’s ‘Sharp Objects‘, has been tapped to play a young Gloria Steinem in the biopic. ‘The Glorias’ will also have Alicia Vikander, who is in negotiations to play the feminist and social-political activist from age 20-40. The movie releases on January 26, 2020.

1. Lisey’s Story (TBA)
Stephen King is one of the finest storytellers we have, and someone who is capable of keeping a viewer hooked right from the start, to the very end. Thus, it is not surprising to see many of his works being made into movies or television shows. That being said, the trend of adapting King’s works for the audiovisual medium is at an all-time high now, and ‘Lisey’s Story’ is one of the shows that we are getting, as a result.
The idea apparently hit King when he was involved in an accident and went back after recuperating in the hospital. When he saw how his studio was rearranged by his wife, with books in boxes, King got a sensation of what it would be like after his death. The premise follows a widow who has to deal with her husband’s death and many of his secrets. As she comes to terms with aspects of his life she did not know about, she has to deal with an avid fan who is bent on ensuring that her husband’s unpublished works see the light of day.
The cast includes the likes of Dane DeHaan, and King spoke about the project, saying, “Lisey’s Story is my favorite of the books and I would love to see that done, especially now that there’s a kind of openness on the streaming services on TV and even the cable networks. There’s more freedom to do stuff now and when you do a movie from a book, there’s this thing that I call the sitting on a suitcase syndrome. That is where you try to pack in all the clothes at once and the suitcase won’t close. So it’s tough to take a book that is fully textured, and do it in two hours and 10 minutes. But as a TV show you have 10 hours.” King has reportedly written all the episodes for the series.
After the Wedding (2019)
‘After the Wedding’ is a drama film directed by Bart Freundlich. It is a remake of the 2006 film of the same name by Susanne Bier. It had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2019. The film follows a manager of an orphanage in Kolkata who travels to New York to meet a benefactor at her wedding.
In February 2018, Julianne Moore was set to star in an American remake of the Danish film by Susanne Bier, and the leading roles were changed from male to female. Diane Kruger was also cast. However, in April 2018, Michelle Williams replaced Kruger. In May 2018, Billy Crudup and Abby Quinn joined the cast. Principal production began in May 2018. The film will had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2019, and released theatrically on August 9, 2019.
