Julianne Moore Goes Back To School
With Greg Kinnear in The English Teacher

Julianne Moore Goes Back To School

There are some ginormous Julianne Moore fans around these parts, so any day when she signs up for a new project seems like a Good Day. Ideally she'd sign up for a new project every day but that would probably destroy her. Instead, we'll take tidings that she's joining Greg Kinnear in The English Teacher and hope it gives her plenty of opportunity to flaunt her acting chops.

Billed as an 'indie comedy', The English Teacher follows high-school English teacher Linda Sinclair (Moore) whose life is turned upside down by the return of a star student. Said pupil has failed as a playwright in New York and gone back to his small-town school, presumably in some kind of teaching capacity, where he makes things awkward for Sinclair. Whether there's a romantic angle, we're not wholly sure, but they're unlikely to be spending the time bickering over Walt Whitman.

The English Teacher marks the directorial debut of Craig Zisk. He's got a solid chunk of offbeat TV work behind him, including episodes of Nip/Tuck, The Big C and Weeds, which might give some clue as to the tone of his first feature. Then again, it may not.

No word yet on Kinnear's role in things but check back for more on that.
