Michelle Williams is in talks to play the female lead alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Benedict Cumberbatch in “Call Me By Your Name” director Luca Guadagnino’s next project “Let It Fall Back” at Studiocanal.
Steven Knight (“Peaky Blinders,” “Locke”) penned the script which stars Gyllenhaal as a financial reporter who travels to Rio de Janeiro to visit a wealthy friend (Cumberbatch), only to get sucked into a plot to fake his friend’s death.
Specifics of Williams’ role are being kept under wraps. Gyllenhaal and Cumberbatch will each produce along with Adam Ackland and Riva Marker. Filming begins next year.
