Since Jessica Chastain will never, ever stop, she’s joining Miss Julie, Liv Ullmann’s first directorial feature since 2000’s Faithless. Colin Farrell will also appear in the adaptation of a “battle-of-the-sexes play” by August Strindberg. “The original story, set in 1874 at a count’s estate in Sweden, follows a woman trying to escape an existence cramped by social mores who is suddenly drawn to a senior servant,” Variety writes. Chastain should do one film set in each of the last 250ish years.
