Here she comes!
Mary Magdalene, that’s who.
Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara (Carol) is circling an M2 biopic that is currently coming together with director Garth Davis (Sundance Channel’s Top of the Lake) at the helm and The Weinstein Company on board., y’all.
The project will take an authentic and humanistic approaching in telling the story of one of the most enigmatic (and polarizing) figures of Christianity.
Davis reportedly is keen on Mara taking the part given her “raw, brave approach to performances [and] her deeply magnetic inner life.”
In other words, girlfriend has that air of mystery that the role will require.
