Christian Camargo to write and direct ‘The Seagull’ for big screen
Christian Camargo, who plays Eleazer in Breaking Dawn, will be writing and directing a modern day film adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull. The film is already rounding up some serious acting talent in Alison Janney, William Hurt, Juliet Rylance (Camargo’s wife), and Katie Holmes.
The film will be “set in rural New England where reckless desire wreaks havoc over Memorial Day weekend as a family confronts the volatile and fragile nature of love.”
Allison will play Elizabeth, a movie star based on the role of Irina Arkadina in The Seagull, while William will play her ailing brother. Katie is going to play the temperamental daughter of the estate’s caretaker, according to Variety.
