Elisabeth Moss to star in Ritesh Batra’s Rosemary Kennedy biopic

Two-time Golden Globe victor Elisabeth Moss is set to produce and star as troubled heiress Rose Marie "Rosemary" Kennedy in a new biopic called A Letter From Rosemary Kennedy.

Rosemary grew up in privilege in MA as the sister of future President John F. Kennedy and Senators Robert F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy, but she had learning difficulties and developmental challenges. She was kept from public view, and suffered a botched lobotomy aged 23 which left her incapacitated and institutionalised for the rest of her life, with minimal contact from her family.

Variety reported Friday that Our Souls at Night director Ritesh Batra will helm the feature about the lesser known Kennedy based on a Black List spec script by first-timer Nick Yarborough.

"The movies about the Kennedy family are deservedly stormy affairs, but here's a story about the storms within all of us". The film now does not have a release date, but we expect a release sometime in 2019.

Earlier this week it was announced that Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Elisabeth Moss has signed on to reunite with her Queen of Earth director Alex Ross Perry for Her Smell, and now comes word that The Handmaid's Tale star has booked another big screen role.
