Playwright Horovitz (The Indian Wants the Bronx) will adapt and direct the upcoming film, which is based on his Off-Broadway play of the same name and will shoot in Paris this month.
My Old Lady, which follows Kline's character as he travels to Paris to sell a huge apartment his father left him, was seen at the Promenade Theatre in fall 2002. Also cast in the film is Dominique Pinon.
Distributed internationally by Protagonist Pictures, the film is produced by Rachael Horovitz and Gary Foster with Nitsa Benchetrit and David Barrot. Co-producing are David Atrakchi, Boris Mendza and Gael Cabouat with executive producers Charles Cohen and Daniel Battsek, and Joe Oppenheimer and Christine Langan.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
