Back in June Ellen page did an interview about Mercy, a project she and Kate would be doing together. More information about it started to be released this week.
Per Variety, “Page is portraying Lucy, the daughter of a man on death row falling in love with Mara’s Mercy character, a woman on the opposing side of her family’s political cause. As a result, Lucy’s value for truth is tested as her world begins to unravel.”
Tali Shalom Ezer, who previously directed the Sundance drama “Princess,” will direct the film from a script by Joe Barton. The film will be produced by Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa for Killer Films, along with Page and Mara.
“Mercy” is set to start shooting in Cincinnati next month.
