Joe Talbot Will Helm Adaptation Of ‘The Governesses,’ Lily-Rose Depp and Hoyeon Set To Star

A24 has announced the next film from the director of The Last Black Man In San Francisco, Joe Talbot. Title The Governesses, it follows three rebellious governesses who upend the household they work in  –– inspiriting the minds of the boys in their care, igniting the imaginations of the bohemian couple who employ them and abandoning their charges for erotic adventures. The story comes from the Anne Serre novel of the same name, with the screenplay being handled by Talbot and poet/novelist Olivia Gatwood (Life of the Party).

Set to star are French-American Actress Lily-Rose Depp (The Idol, Yoga Hosers), Cannes Best Actress Award Winner and BAFTA Best Actress Nominee Renate Reinsve (The Worst Person in the World), and South Korean model and actress HoYeon, who made waves last year in her debut as Kang Sae-byeok in Squid Game.

Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element Pictures will produce with Rob Richert of Talbot’s Longshot Features and Angus Lamont. The Governesses will be shot in Spain.
