Rachel Weisz is cast for an important role in Lanny, based on the latest book by Max Porter.
In the story of Lanny, the title person moves with his family to a village in England, where hominess and imagination run together. Weisz was cast as the mother of the protagonist.
In 2017, the British writer Max Porter won the European Literature Prize for Grief is the thing with the feathers. His latest work Lanny appears this month.
Rachel Weisz recently received an Oscar nomination for The Favorite. In 2005 she won that prize for the book adaptation The Constant Gardener.
