Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell will star in the Liv Ullman-directed adaptation of the play “Miss Julie”.

Samantha Morton (“In America”) is also onboard the picture, which tells a classic Swedish battle-of-the-sexes story.

The original story took place in 1874 at the estate of the Count of Sweden, and follows a woman trying to escape an existence cramped by social mores who is suddenly drawn to a senior servant.

Oliver Dungey and Teun Hilte are producing, says Variety.
