Actor lands the role of Laurent in adaptation.
Oscar Isaac (‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ ‘Drive’) has been set to star opposite Elizabeth Olsen (‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’), and Tom Felton (‘Harry Potter’) in writer-director Charlie Stratton’s adaptation of the Emile Zola novel ‘Thérèse Raquin,’ reports Deadline.
In the film Olsen plays the title character, who is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sick, spoiled first cousin Camille (Felton), and living with his mother. Thérèse soon begins an illicit love affair with Camille’s friend Laurent (Isaac), which leads to a tragic outcome for all three.
Glenn Close was previously linked to the project, and was set to play Camille’s mother, but Deadline reports that Jessica Lange (‘American Horror Story’) now has the role.
