Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon has been roped in to replace Diane Keaton in the Roger Michell-directed remake of an English-language remake to the 2014 Danish film, Silent Heart, helmed by Bille August.
According to a media report, the film, which features Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska, will also star Sam Neill of ‘Jurassic Park’ fame, Bex Taylor-Klaus from ‘Arrow’ and newcomer Anson Boon, to name a few.
The film revolves around Lily (Sarandon), a terminally ill mother who brings her daughters (Winslet and Wasikowska) and their families together for one last family gathering before she commits suicide.
The script of the film has been written by Christian Thorpe, and is being produced by Sherryl Clark and Millennium’s David Bernardi.
The film’s shooting is slated to begin next week in the United Kingdom.
