Actors Emma Mackey, Jamie Lee Curtis, Woody Harrelson, Ayo Edebiri, Albert Brooks, Kumail Nanjiani and Spike Fearn are in talks to star in the James L Brooks film titled Ella McCkay. The film will mark the director's comeback after 13 years.

Attached to 20th Century, Steve Asbell, president of the banner, was quoted by Deadline, "As one of the most empathetic dramatists of our time, James Brooks has set the bar across film and television for decades. From Broadcast News to The Simpsons, Jim is also a foundational element in the bedrock of 20th and we couldn’t be more proud to support him in his long awaited return to the director’s chair."

Ella McCkay is supposed to follow the life of a young politician, balancing familial and professional issues, all this while going to take over her mentor's place.

The film will be produced by James along with Julie Ansell, and Richard Sakai under Gracie Films banner. Seth Meier will serve as executive producer.
