Set around a luxury hotel in Dublin in the 19th century, the “Gosford Park”-esque drama has Glenn Close reprising her award-winning stage role of a woman who impersonates a man to survive.

Michael Gambon, Orlando Bloom and Janet McTeer also star in the project which Rodrigo Garcia (“Mother and Child”) will direct. Close and John Banville adapted the script from author George Moore’s short story.

Close, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn will produce. Filming kicks off this June in Dublin.
