Julianne Moore and Zach Galifianakis sign up for indie drama Freeheld

Here’s a delightful pair…

Julianne Moore and Zach Galifianakis will join Ellen Page in FREEHELD. The film is based on the 2007 Academy Award winning documentary. Here’s a detailed synopsis for the indie drama:

The film chronicles the true story of the late Laurel Hester (Moore), a New Jersey police detective whose world was shattered when she became terminally ill and government officials prevented her from assigning her pension benefits to her domestic partner, Stacie Andree (Page).

Laurel’s conservative detective partner Dane Wells was shocked when he learned of her sexual orientation, but he became the leader in the fight for the same-sex couple’s rights.

Galifianakis is onboard to play Garden State Equality activist Steven Goldstein.

Peter Sollett (NICK & NORAH’S INFINIATE PLAYLIST) will direct the screenplay from Ron Nyswaner (PHILADELPHIA). Production is slated to start this Summer.

What I find more interesting is that I’m just finding out that an FX series is being developed for Galifianakis with Louis C.K. as a co-writer.
