Michelle Pfeiffer, Lucas Hedges join French Exit
The surrealist comedy will be directed by Azazel Jacobs
Actors Michelle Pfeiffer, Lucas Hedges and Tracy Letts have been roped in for the comedy film French Exit. The surrealist comedy will be directed by Azazel Jacobs.
Pfeiffer will play 60-year-old poverty-stricken Manhattan socialite Frances Price, while Hedges will play her directionless son, Malcolm, and Letts fills the role of the embodiment of Franklin, her long-deceased husband, in the form of the family cat.
Patrick deWitt has adapted the screenplay based on his novel of the same name, while Thorsten Schumacher's Rocket Science is financing and producing the film along with Elevation Pictures.
