Oscar nominee Uma Thurman is possibly set to make her Broadway debut this fall in a play written by Beau Willimon and helmed by Amélie director Pam MacKinnon. Deadline reports the House of Cards writer will be making his own Broadway debut with The Parisian Woman, inspired by Henry Becque’s late 19th century comedy La Parisienne.
Among the producers attached is Steven Baruch, whose recent Broadway credits include In Transit, The Encounter, and Penn & Teller on Broadway. With a budget that is still in development, the production will reportedly play a 20-week run at a yet-to-be-named theatre in the fall.
Willimon's additional stage works include Farragut North, Lower Ninth, Spirit Control, and Breathing Time.
According to Deadline, The Parisian Woman is a tale of sexual politics set in present day Washington D.C. Thurman is tapped to play Chloe, one half of a power couple angling to secure an important judicial post.
A press representative for Thurman has been reached for comment but has not yet been able to confirm the news.
