A24 sets Joe Talbot’s sophomore feature film The Governesses with Lily-Rose Depp, Hoyeon, and Renate Reinsve set to star
A24 has greenlit ‘The Governesses’ with Joe Talbot set to helm. The screenplay is by Joe Talbot and poet/novelist Olivia Gatwood (Life of the Party) based on Anne Serre’s novel of the same name. Lily-Rose Depp (The Idol), SAG Winner Hoyeon (Squid Game), and Cannes Best Actress Award Winner and BAFTA Best Actress Nominee Renate Reinsve (The Worst Person in the World) have come on board to star.
This will mark Talbot’s second film with A24 after his critically acclaimed feature debut The Last Black Man in San Francisco. The film follows three rebellious governesses who upend the household they work in –– inspiriting the minds of the boys in their care, igniting the imaginations of the bohemian couple who employ them, and abandoning their charges for erotic adventures.
The film will be shot in Spain. Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element Pictures will produce with Rob Richert of Talbot’s Longshot Features and Angus Lamont. BBC Film will co-finance alongside A24. The project was developed with the support of BBC Film. A24 will handle the global release of the film.
Depp, Hoyeon, and Reinsve are repped by CAA.
