Julia Louis-Dreyfus is set to star in Daina O. Pusic’s debut feature film “Tuesday” at A24, the company announced Wednesday.
Lola Petticrew will play the role of Tuesday, co-starring as Louis-Dreyfus’ daughter in the film. Actor and playwright Arinzé Kene has also joined the cast.
Described as a mother-daughter fairytale, the plot of the film is being kept under wraps. The project was developed with BBC Film, BFI and Gingerbread Pictures.
Producing alongside A24 are Ivana MacKinnon for Wild Swim Films, Helen Gladders for Gingerbread Pictures and Oliver Roskill for Record Player Films. BBC Film joins A24 as co-financing partners, alongside BFI awarding funds from the National Lottery, and Cinereach.
