THE WIFE Casts Glenn Close As Star


Drama The Wife has cast Glenn close as its star alongside Jonathan Price and Christian Slater.


The drama centres around an award winning writer and his wife who has long stayed in the background as their marriage reaches a breaking point.

Close had this to say:

I have never played a character like Joan Castleman and am thrilled by the prospect of bringing her to life. I have huge admiration for Jonathan Pryce’s sublime talent and am honored to be partnering with him in ‘The Wife.’ The story is arresting and the characters are artists of the highest order — complex, passionate, flawed and movingly human. I adore Jane Anderson’s writing and look forward to being guided by Björn Runge.

The Wife is directed by Swedish director Björn Runge (De Blaue Engel, Daybreak) with a screenplay by screenwriter Jane Anderson (Olive Kitteridge), adapted from Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel.
