Katie Holmes Set for Christian Carmago's 'Seagull' Retelling

Katie Holmes is set to star in a modern retelling of The Seagull, the classic play by Anton Chekhov.

The 33-year-old actress will star alongside Allison Janney, William Hurt, Juliet Rylance, Mark Rylance, and Jean Reno. The film will be written and directed by Dexter actor Christian Carmago.

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.

Juliet, who is married to Christian in real life, will also produce the flick.
