Todd Haynes ("Im Not There") has signed on to helm "Carol", starring the always incredible Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska. His longtime producing partner Christine Vachon, is also signed on to the picture and Phyllis Nagy wrote the screenplay.
Based on Patricia Highsmith's 1952 novella "The Price of Salt", the film takes place in 1950s New York and centers around the relationship of two women. Wasikowska will play a department store clerk who dreams of a better life and Blanchett will play woman trapped in a meaningless marriage.
Blanchett is one of the best actresses out there today, as she constantly proves she can impressively tackle any subject matter with depth. It's been a pleasure watching Wasikowska also flex her acting chops, as she was sensational in the Park Chan-Wook masterpiece "Stoker", which was definitely a very edgy and complex role.
Haynes is replacing the previously announced John Crowley. No word on production yet but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.
