Liv Ullmann Directing Miss Julie Adaptation With Michelle Williams

After spending a majority of her career working as the right hand girl to one Ingmar Bergman, Liv Ullmann has since become one of the most interesting actresses-turned-directors in recent memory. And while we haven’t seen the director in quite some time, she’s got one hell of a new project to mark her return with.

According to an interview with the Boston Globe (and a hat tip to The Playlist), Ullmann reveals that she’ll be working on her next film, next year, in Ireland. Joining her will be star Michelle Williams, and apparently, the film will be an adaptation of an August Strindberg play, entitled ‘Miss Julie.’

The play looks at the culture of the 1870s, and honestly, I can’t wait to check this sucker out. The film is admittedly far off, and while the likelihood of us getting a chance to see it anytime remotely close to the film’s wrapping next year shouldn’t be expected. I’m not all that familiar with Ullmann as a filmmaker, but she’s a brilliant actress, so I’m more than sure that she’s learned more than her fair share of things from the various master filmmakers she’s had the pleasure of working with.
