Julianne Moore to topline “Still Alice” bestseller adaptation

PanARMENIAN.Net - Julianne Moore has come on board “Still Alice” starring as a university professor in an adaptation of Lisa Genova’s novel, Variety said.

“Still Alice” is scheduled to start shooting New York mid-February.

The project is a Lex Lutzus and James Brown production in association with Killer Films. “Still Alice” is fully financed by BSM Studio, the newly launched one-stop-shop financing venture formed between Paris-based Backup Media and Marie Savare.

Moore will portray a cognitive psychologist who faces the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

“Still Alice” has been translated into more than 25 languages and is the writing debut of Genova, who holds a doctorate in neuroscience from Harvard U.

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are on board to direct the adaptation. The duo also directed and wrote “The Last of Robin Hood,” which recently launched at the Toronto Film Festival, and “Quinceanera.”
