Close, who hasn't appeared on Broadway since her Tony-winning turn in Sunset Boulevard, hinted at a New York stage return in an interview with the Washington Post earlier this year. "I'm not sure what the producer's plan is," she said, declining to name the production. "I think he might want more of a cast before [announcing the news]."
The Post reports that Scott Rudin will produce the revival that is to be directed by Simon McBurney.
An official announcement of the production has not been made.
Close, an Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony Award winner and six-time Academy Award nominee, has performed onstage in Sunset Boulevard, Death and the Maiden and The Real Thing. Some of her film credits include "Fatal Attraction" and "Dangerous Liaisons," and her TV credits include "Damages" and "The Shield."
