Skarsgard, Coogan Know “What Maisie Knew”

Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan and Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”) are all set to co-star in the dramedy “What Maisie Knew” says The Hollywood Reporter.

A contemporary-set adaptation of the Henry James novel, the story centers on Maisie, a six-year-old girl enmeshed in the bitter divorce of her mother (Moore), a rock and roll icon, and her father (Coogan), a charming but distracted art dealer.

Skarsgard will play Moore’s new husband. Nancy Doyne and Carroll Cartwright penned the script while Scott McGehee and David Siegel will direct. Shooting kicks off this August in New York.
