The first image has been released from the new film The Wife, which co-stars three-time Tony winner Glenn Close and two-time Tony winner Jonathan Pryce as a couple whose marriage is in jeopardy, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Filming concluded in December for the motion picture, which is based on a novel by Meg Wolitzer that was adapted by Jane Anderson. A release date has not been announced.

Directed by Bjorn Runge, the film also features Elizabeth McGovern, Harry Lloyd, and Annie Stark.

Close, according to the industry website, portrays Joan Castleman, “wife of one of America's preeminent novelists (played by Pryce) who is about to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. But after decades spent ignoring her own literary talents to focus on his, she finally decides that enough is enough.”

Close returns to Broadway next month in the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard, which begins previews February 2 at the Palace Theatre.
