Glenn Close In “Albert Nobbs” Films

Glenn Close will reprise her famous stage role in “Albert Nobbs”, a film adaptation of the 1980’s Broadway costume drama “The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs” for WestEnd Films reports Screen Daily.

Set around a luxury hotel in Dublin in the 19th century, the “Gosford Park”-esque drama has Close playing a woman who impersonates a man to survive.

Orlando Bloom, Michael Gambon and Janet McTeer also star. Rodrigo Garcia (“Nine Lives,” “Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her”) directs from a script which Close co-wrote. Close, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn will produce.

Filming kicks off in July.
