Olsen And Close Headline Therese Raquin
A new adaptation of the Zola novel

Olsen And Close Headline Therese Raquin

They're tipped to be rivals for the next Best Actress oscar, but Elizabeth Olsen and Glenn Close will shortly be joining forces in a new version of Therese Raquin.

Emile Zola's naturalist 1867 novel involves the eponymous orphan heroine being railroaded into an unhappy marriage by her overbearing aunt, Madame Raquin. Chained to the feeble Camille, Therese begins an aggressive affair with the dashing Laurent, but its future is not a happy one, and there's murder afoot...

Therese is a meaty role for Olsen, following her breakout performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene. Likewise Madame Raquin is a strong part for Close, who'll want to capitalise on her big "comeback" in Albert Nobbs (although Therese Raquin will involve her being paralysed for a large portion of the run-time if it remains faithful to the novel).

The adaptor is Charlie Stratton, who's directed episodes of series' like Everwood and The Beautiful Life, and perhaps more pertinently, brought Neal Bell's play version to the LA stage in the late 1990s, with 24's Leslie Hope as Therese. The movie Therese Raquin will be his first gig as principal director on a big screen project, and shooting starts in the spring.
