Directing News: Susanne Bier and Carol Morley Start New Projects

Susanne Bier and Carol Morley are helming some new and exciting projects–both of which include cast members from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Morley will be directing The Falling, which she also wrote, starring Maisie Williams. Williams will play a troubled girl at a British all-girls school in 1969 that becomes the center of a fainting epidemic. The cause of the epidemic is unknown and Williams’ character is determined to find out what’s going on. The film will co-star Florence Pugh, Monica Dolan, Greta Scacchi and Maxine Peak.

And Bier will be teaming back up with her In A Better World scribe, Anders Thomas Jensen, for A Second Chance. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will star as a man questioning how far he is willing to go in the face of tragedy when it blurs between what is moral and what isn’t. Bier has been a directing powerhouse as of late. Her last film was Love is All You Need.

She directed the upcoming Serena starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. She’s also set to direct a Mary Queen of Scots adaptation starring Saoirse Ronan and The Rules of Inheritance which will reteam Bier and Lawrence.
