About 'May December':

Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore Are Set To Star In Todd Haynes 'May December,' Which Will Premiere At The Cannes Film Market.

Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore will be the leads in Rocket Science's May-December, directed by Todd Haynes. The film was written by Samy Burch, with the story conceived by Burch and Alex Mechanik. Rocket Science is beginning sales for international markets at the Virtual Cannes Market, while UTA Independent Film Group and CAA Media Finance represent US rights.

Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell, Christine Vachon, and Pam Koffler will produce the upcoming film alongside Portman and Sophie Mas. The movie is scheduled to begin filming next year.

After being tabloid celebrities for nearly 20 years, Gracie Atherton-Yu and her husband Joe are preparing to send their twin toddlers to high school. When Hollywood actress Elizabeth Berry visits the household to understand better Gracie, who she will be playing in a film, family dynamics unravel under the pressure of the outside eye. At 36, Joe has never accepted what happened in his youth; he begins to face the harsh reality of life as an empty nester. The parallels and distinctions between Elizabeth and Gracie begin to ebb and flow as the two women study one another. Set in lovely Camden, Maine, May December is a meditation on truth, storytelling, and the challenges (or impossibility) of fully comprehending someone else.

“What so appealed to me about Samy Burch’s exceptional script was how it navigated potentially volatile subject matter with a kind of observational patience that allowed the characters in the story to be explored with uncommon subtlety,” Haynes said.

My December will see Moore and Haynes reunite for the sixth time, following previous collaborations, including Far from Heaven. Their next project is a documentary about The Velvet Underground, which will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. Portman recently wrapped principal photography on Marvel Studios/Disney’s Thor: Love and Thunder, while Moore will star in Universal’s upcoming film adaptation of the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen.

Haynes is represented by the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and Cinetic Media; Portman is represented by CAA and Agence Adequat; Moore by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment (WME) and Management 360; Burch is represented by Grandview; Elbaum, Ferrell, and Gloria Sanchez are respectively represented by United Talent Agency(UTA), Mosaic, and attorneys Jackoway Austen.
