A24 has announced today that they will re-team with The Green Knight director David Lowery on a new film described as a “pop music epic”. It will focus on the relationship between a musician, played by Anne Hathaway, and an iconic fashion designer, played by I May Destroy You‘s Michaela Cole. Hathaway’s casting is notable in that she will sing in the film, which she hasn’t done since 2014’s Song One. Musical duties will be handled by Jack Antonoff and Charli XCX.
The film will be Lowery’s second collaboration with A24 after The Green Knight and A Ghost Story. Antonoff and Charli XCX will write and produce original music, with an original score by David Hart, who also did the scores for Lowery’s previous A24 films and Pete’s Dragon. Lowery, Toby Halbrooks, and James M. Johnston will produce alongside Jeanie Igoe of Homebird Productions and Jonas Katzenstein, Maximilian Leo and Jonathan Saubach of Cologne-based augenschein Filmproduktion. Mother Mary is set to film in Germany and will be distributed worldwide by A24.
