Amanda Seyfried, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Orlando Bloom have joined the cast of Rodrigo Garcia’s “Albert Nobbs,” which sees Glenn Close reprise her award-winning stage role as a woman who must pass as a man to survive life in 19th century Ireland.

Project is dear to Close and marks her feature producing debut. She also adapted the script from the short story by Irish author George Moore with author John Banville.

Garcia begins shooting in June in Dublin. Also joining the cast are Michael Gambon and Janet McTeer.

In the story, the heroine finds herself trapped in a prison of her own making after spending 20 years dressing and working as a man.

Close won an Obie Award in 1983 playing the same character in Simone Benmussa’s Off Broadway interpretation of “The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs.” Producing the feature film with Close are Bonnie Curtis, Julie Lynn and Alan Moloney. The Irish Film Board is providing some development support, while WestEnd Films is handling international sales.

Film marks Close’s third collaboration with Garcia after “Nine Lives” and “Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her.”

Seyfried is repped by Innovative Artists; Rhy Meyers and Bloom, CAA.

    Glenn Close and Jonathan worked together on the TV movie, “A Lion in Winter.” I don’t recall them having many scenes together but it was a really good movie. Jonathan played King Phillip of France and Glenn played Eleanor of Acquitaine.

    This new movie sounds interesting.

    I searched for this movie on IMDb, but found no Alfred Nobbs, only one called Albert Nobbs…Could there be any mistake?

    Yes, that was an article mistake. It’s Albert Nobbs, not Alfred. Sorry about that!

    Who runs this website? There isn’t a mention of the Tudors Season 4, or if JRM is promoting the show. What gives?
