Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Star in A24 Movie ‘Tuesday’

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is set to star in the upcoming A24 movie “Tuesday.”

Plot details are being kept under wraps, though the film is being described as a “mother-daughter fairytale.”

Irish actor Lola Petticrew, whose credits include indie comedies “A Bump Along the Way” and “Dating Amber” will play the Louis Dreyfus’ daughter, named Tuesday, in the film. The cast also includes British actor and playwright Arinzé Kene (“I’m Your Woman,” “How to Build a Girl”).

BBC Film is co-financing the film with A24, alongside BFI awarding funds from the National Lottery, and Cinereach. The project was developed with BBC Film, BFI, and Gingerbread Pictures.

Along with A24, producers include Ivana MacKinnon for Wild Swim Films, Helen Gladders for Gingerbread Pictures and Oliver Roskill for Record Player Films.

London-based filmmaker Daina O. Pusic is directing “Tuesday” in her feature film directorial debut. She gained recognition after her short film “The Beast” premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in 2015. Her follow-up short film, a comedy called “Rhonna & Donna,” played at Telluride in 2016 and won several awards.

A24, the company behind indie favorites like “Lady Bird,” “Uncut Gems,” “Minari” and “Eighth Grade,” has several projects slated for release this summer. Its lineup includes “False Positive,” a contemporary take on “Rosemary’s Baby” starring Ilana Glazer on June 25, Janicza Bravo’s epic retelling of a Twitter thread “Zola” on June 30, and the medieval fantasy drama “The Green Knight” with Dev Patel on July 31.

Louis-Dreyfus is represented by CAA. Pusic is represented by Marnie Podos at Under New Mgmt. Petticrew is represented by Hamilton Hodell. Kene is represented by Curtis Brown and Brillstein Entertainment.
