Irons in the Fire: Updates on Lynne Ramsay’s Stone Mattress, Polaris & Die, My Love

She has been attached to several new projects since You Were Never Really Here was released and we’ve got a massive update thanks to the Screen Daily folks covering Doha Film Institute’s Qumra Event. The first film out of the gate for Lynne Ramsay will be the adaptation of a short story from Atwood’s 2014 collection of the same name which is “about a woman (Julianne Moore) who goes on a cruise in a frozen region and encounters a man who raped her 50 years ago. “It’s such a challenge, that film because it’s a boat in the Arctic – it [needs] all the elements aligning.” Here is what we have:
