Cate Blanchett will make her directorial debut on 'The Dinner'

Posted on

After a number of award-worthy performances, Cate Blanchett (most recently seen in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine) is stepping behind the camera for the first time.

EW has confirmed that Blanchett will make her directorial debut on a film adaptation of Herman Koch’s novel The Dinner, which tells the story of two families who are forced to decide how far they will go to protect their teenage sons. The entire story takes place over one dinner.

Oren Moverman (The Messenger) is attached to write the script. Moverman will also executive produce alongside Eva Maria Daniels and Olga Segura.
