The studio confirmed that Emmy-nominee Maya Forbes and Emmy-winner Wally Wolodarsky will direct, working on a script they co-wrote, and adapted from Ann Leary’s novel. If you didn’t read the original novel, the story Hildy Good (Weaver), a wry New England realtor and descendant of the Salem witches, who loves her wine and loves her secrets. Her compartmentalized life starts to unravel as she rekindles an old romance and becomes dangerously entwined in one person’s reckless behavior.
The project is produced by Emmy Award-winner Jane Rosenthal, Emmy Award-nominee Berry Welsh and Oscar-nominee Aaron Ryder. The executive producers are Erika Hampson, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos and Steve Samuels.
Weaver is well known for her Oscar-nominated roles in “Aliens,” “Working Girl,” and “Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey,” as well as her leading role as Dr. Grace Augustine in the “Avatar” franchise.
Kline won an Oscar for his supporting role in “A Fish Called Wanda,” and is recognized by audiences worldwide for his roles in “Sophie’s Choice,” “The Big Chill,” “De-Lovely” and “Beauty and the Beast.” He is a three-time Tony Award-winner, most recently being awarded Best Actor in a Play for his role in the 2017 revival of Present Laughter.
Weaver and Kline previously appeared on screen together in 1993’s Oscar-nominated comedy “Dave” and the 1997 drama “The Ice Storm.”
