‘Handmaid’s Tale’ star Elizabeth Moss will play the role of late Rosemary Kennedy in Ritesh Batra’s next directorial venture “A Letter From Rosemary Kennedy”.
Reportedly, Rosemary was the younger sister of former US President John F Kennedy, and the third child of Joseph P Kennedy and Rose Fitzgerald.
The film’s story is based on a Black List spec script by first-timer Nick Yarborough, will chronicle the life of Rosemary, who spent a lifetime hidden from public view because of the political ambitions of her father, Joseph Kennedy. “The movies about the Kennedy family are deservedly stormy affairs, but here’s a story about the storms within all of us.”
“This is why I am excited to tell this story, and to collaborate with Elisabeth, a fabulously talented actor,” Batra said in a statement. Jason Michael Bermanand Kevin Turen will produce the project along with Moss. Richard Arlook, Allard Cantor, and Jarrod Murray will serve as the executive producers.
