Actor Julia Louis-Dreyfus and director Nicole Holofsner will reunite on Beth and Dawn, a new comedy about a novelist whose marriage begins to deteriorate after hearing her husband’s offer to give her a candid appraisal of her work. The pair had previously worked together for the highly acclaimed 2013 film Enough Said.

According to Variety, Louis-Dreyfus will produce the film, as well as star in the picture, with Holofsner writing the script in addition to directing it. Anthony Bregman and Stephanie Azpiazzo are serving as producers.

UTA Independent Film Group would handle the US sales and canceled the deal with FilmNation Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers.

The official logline reads: “Beth is in an incredibly happy marriage with Dawn, a New York novelist who loves her and supports her in every way possible. One day, when Beth overhears her admitting that she has If he doesn’t like his writing, it threatens to undo whatever is good in his life.”

Glen Besner, CEO of FilmNation Entertainment, said in a statement, “The film is a breath of fresh air what our distributors have been waiting for in a comedy, and we look forward to unveiling the project with our longtime friends from Likely Story. Couldn’t be more excited.”

“Nicole and Julia are the masters of modern human comedy – stories where we can see their own weirdness and blind spots in every well-intentioned character. Along with their final collaboration, Beth and Don are a bright, adventurous tale of trying people. To behave well, and to fail hilariously at it,” Bregman said.

Louis-Dreyfusa is best known for his work on original television comedies such as Veep and Seinfeld. She recently joined the MCU, appearing in both The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and “Black Widow” as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. She recently wrapped up the production of A24’s upcoming film, Tuesday, which is described as a ‘mother-daughter story’. She will next appear in the Eddie Murphy untitled comedy feature directed by Jonah Hill and Kenya Barris for Netflix.

Holofcener has written and directed six films including Friends with Money, Lovely and Amazing and Walking and Talking. He most recently co-wrote the screenplay for Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel.

Filming on Beth and Dawn will begin in New York City in early 2022.
