Brit Marling, James Franco and Glenn Close have been set to star in literary adaptation “The Grace That Keeps This World”, according to Deadline. Azazel Jacobs will direct from a script by Matthew Aldrich, who adapted the Tom Bailey novel of the same name. The story will follow “a father and his sons as they prepare for the upcoming hunting season. Family conflicts arise when a rookie environmental cop begins an investigation of hunting violations that reveals a family divided by their life choices.”
Marling has become the It Girl of the indie scene thanks to her dueling Sundance breakouts in “Another Earth” and “Sound of My Voice” in 2011, both of which she also co-wrote. She can currently be seen playing Richard Gere’s daughter in thriller “Arbitrage” and recently completed work on another indie she co-wrote and starred in, “The East.” She’ll next be seen opposite Robert Redford and Shia Labeouf in “The Company You Keep.” This fall she will shoot young Lincoln biopic “The Green Blade Rises” with Diane Kruger and Jason Clarke.
