Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell are set to star in “Faithless” director Liv Ullmann’s adaptation of August Strindberg’s battle-of-the-sexes play “Miss Julie”.

The original story is set in 1874 at a count’s estate in Sweden. The action follows a woman trying to escape an existence cramped by social mores who is suddenly drawn to a senior servant.
