Jessica Chastain replaces Michelle Williams in HBO series
'Scenes From A Marriage' is an adaptation of the Ingmar Bergman classic.
HBO’s limited series Scenes From a Marriage is replacing one multiple Oscar nominee with another for its female lead.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Jessica Chastain will star opposite Oscar Isaac in the drama, an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1970s miniseries. She takes over the part from Michelle Williams, who had to drop out because of scheduling conflicts.
The limited series will re-examine the original miniseries’ iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple.
Chastain and Isaac previously co-starred in the 2014 feature A Most Violent Year.
