Julianne Moore is set to team up again with writer-director Todd Haynes in his upcoming adaptation of Wonderstruck, Deadline has exclusively revealed. The movie's plot will be based on the children's novel of the same title by The Invention of Hugo Cabret author Brian Selznick.
Wonderstruck tells the intertwined story of two deaf children named Ben and Rose. Minnesota-based Ben lives with his family in 1977 and travels to New York when a mysterious note shows up following his mother's death. Meanwhile in 1927, Rose is locked out of her house in New Jersey and decides to use the time to go find her idol, film actress Lillian Mayhew, in the Big Apple.
It has already been reported that Haynes has already finished the screenplay and that the film is being produced by Christine Vachon, Pam Koffler and John Sloss. Which character Moore will play however remains under wraps.
The Still Alice actress and Haynes previously worked together on the 2002 romantic drama Far From Heaven, which also starred Patricia Clarkson, Dennis Haysbert and Dennis Quaid.
It saw Moore pick up an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of a 1950's housewife whose seemingly perfect life disintegrates around her following the breakdown of her marriage.
It could be seen that Haynes has the golden touch when it comes to his movies, seeing as he could well be on the way to turning another one (or even two in this case) of his more recent leading ladies into award-winners as well as Moore. He is currently promoting his latest picture Carol, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.
The film is already getting 'Oscars' buzz' after being praised at several festivals including BFI London, Telluride and Cannes and many are speculating that either of the two leads could pick up accolades in the upcoming award season.
Before he begins working on Wonderstruck however, the director is set to lead a biopic about Peggy Lee starring Reese Witherspoon, as well as a television series based on the 2012 documentary The Source Family. Meanwhile, Moore is preparing for the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, the eagerly-anticipated final instalment in the young adult franchise. She will also be seen in the US in Freeheld, opposite Ellen Page.
