Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park International has taken international sales on The Seagull in the run-up to Cannes next month.
Annette Bening and Saoirse Ronan star in the adaptation of the Anton Chekhov play that is in the final stages of post-production. Wme and CAA jointly represent North American rights.
The Seagull cast includes Corey Stoll, Elisabeth Moss, who is riding high on rave reviews for Hulu’s adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, and newcomer Billy Howle.
Stephen Karam adapted the play, which centres on eight people – all in love with the wrong person – and explores the dangerously seductive nature of narcissism.
Michael Mayer directs and is best known as the Tony Award-winning director of hit Broadway musicals Spring Awakening, American Idiot, and Hedwig And The Angry Inch as well as feature A Home At The End Of The World.
