Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, and Laurence Fishburne are set to star in ‘The Little Bedroom. It is the English-language remake of the Swiss film, “La Petite Chambre.”
Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, the writer-director duo who created the original film, will return to write and direct the remake, which is a story about life, hope, and the heart.
The Little Bedroom follows John, a man whose heart has weakened with age but still beats with independence. He refuses to move into a retirement home, as suggested by his son Michael, or accept help from Rose, his home nurse. However, after a bad fall, John is forced to rely on Rose, whose own heart is broken and in need of care and healing. As they form a friendship, they help each other find the strength and peace to move on.
Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff, along with Vega Film, which produced the original film, will produce the remake under the Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment banner.
Sierra/Affinity will launch sales on the project and introduce it to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin.
Foster is excited to work with Chuat and Reymond on the film and believes that their talent, combined with the world-class actors Morgan, Kate, and Laurence, will result in a special film.
Chuat and Reymond’s previous film, “My Little Sister,” starred Nina Hoss and premiered at the Berlinale International Film Festival and Locarno in 2021. It was also the Swiss entry for the 2021 Oscars. Their other works include “Les Dames” (2018) and the upcoming Netflix series, “Transatlantic.”
In conclusion, The Little Bedroom is a heartwarming story about two individuals who come together to find strength and peace, and with the star-studded cast and the talented writer-director duo, the film is sure to touch the hearts of audiences everywhere.
