Rachel McAdams is in negotiations to join Rachel Weisz in a film adaptation of the Naomi Alderman novel “Disobedience” for Element Pictures, Braven Films and Film 4.
In the original book, the story follows young woman (Weisz) who returns to her Orthodox Jewish home after learning about the death of her estranged father.
She causes an upheaval in the quiet community when she rekindles a repressed love with her best friend (McAdams) – a woman now married to her cousin.
Sebastian Lelio directs from a script he co-wrote with Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Weisz, Frida Torresblanco and Ed Guiney will produce and filming gets underway in the first quarter of 2017.
