Jessica Chastain to Join Liv Ullmann's Adaptation of <i>Miss Julie</i>

Deadline reports that Zero Dark Thirty’s Jessica Chastain will be joining Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton in an adaptation of the August Strindberg play, Miss Julie.

Considered a major work in the history of Swedish theater, the play centers on an upper-class woman and her late-night confrontation with a servant. The tension between the two eventually leads to a sexual liaison, which becomes a catalyst for an explosive and, ultimately, destructive night.

The film will be directed by Liv Ullmann. A highly respect actress and director in Sweden, Ullman is perhaps best known for her many collaborations with director Ingmar Bergman.
