“Beth & Don” by Nicole Holofcener acquired by A24, Julia Louis-Dreyfus Stars


A24 has acquired the North American rights to Nicole Holofcener and Julia Louis Dreyfus’ latest collaboration, “Beth & Don”. The deal was concluded at the American Film Market, by variety.

Written by Holofcener, the play tells the story of a New York writer whose happy marriage takes a turn when she hears her husband criticizing her work. “Beth & Don” is expected to start production in early 2022.

Holofcener and Louis-Dreyfus had already mated in “Enough Said,” a critically acclaimed 2013 comedy about an empty-to-be nephew who discovers that his new boyfriend and new friend are ex.

Winner of 11 Emmy Awards, Louis-Dreyfus took home the award for “Veep”, “Old Christine’s New Adventures” and “Seinfeld”. “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “Onward” are among his recent credits.

Holofcener made her film debut with 1996’s “Walking and Talking”. Her other film credits as a writer and director include “Please Give” and “Friends with Money”. He co-wrote the scripts for Melissa McCarthy-Starrer “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” and the historical epic “The Last Duel”. The former earned her an Oscar nod and the latter is now in theaters.
