Casey Affleck’s Sea Change Media label is set to produce Mona Fastvold’s new film “The World to Come” with Affleck also leading the cast.
The action follows two women who forge a close connection despite their isolation in the mid-19th-century American frontier. Katherine Waterston, Vanessa Kirby and Jesse Plemons will star.
Ron Hansen (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”) and author Jim Shepard penned the script based on the latter’s short story. Whitaker Lader will also produce with Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa, David Lowery, Toby Halbrooks and James Johnston all executive producing.
