Veteran cinematographer Reed Morano has cast three strong actresses in her feature directorial debut, as Olivia Wilde, Elisabeth Moss and Natasha Lyonne will join Luke Wilson in the psychological drama “Meadowland,” it was announced Wednesday by producer Bron Studios.
Morano is the award-winning cinematographer behind “The Skeleton Twins,” “Frozen River,” “Kill Your Darlings” and HBO’s “Looking.” She will direct “Meadowland” from a script by Chris Rossi.

“Meadowland” follows a couple named Sarah (Wilde) and David (Wilson) who must deal with the unthinkable in the wake of their son’s disappearance. David, a New York City cop, attempts a more traditional form of healing, only to lose his moral compass. Sarah goes down an unexpected path towards acceptance as she places herself in increasingly dangerous situations.
“Meadowland” is a Bron Studios production in association with Creative Wealth Media Finance. Matt Tauber and Wilde are producing alongside Bron’s managing director Aaron L. Gilbert and Margot Hand. Jennifer Levine and Jason Cloth serve as executive producers on the film, which will start production in mid-August in New York City.
WME and Gersh are representing domestic rights on “Meadowland.”

“Mad Men” star Moss will next be seen opposite Mark Duplass in “The One I Love” and Jason Schwartzman in “Listen Up Phillip.” Lyonne co-stars on Netflix’s hit series “Orange Is the New Black” and was recently seen in the indie “G.B.F.”
Bron will begin production this fall on Marc Abraham‘s “I Saw the Light,” which stars Tom Hiddleston as country singer Hank Williams. The company is currently in production on Bobby Miller’s fantasy horror comedy “The Master Cleanse,” which stars Johnny Galecki, Anna Friel and Anjelica Huston.
