Great news! It was announced today by Variety that Sony Classics bought the rights to “The Seagull”, so we can expect news such as release dates and trailers soon enough.

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired most rights to Michael Mayer’s movie adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s play “The Seagull,” starring Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening, and Elisabeth Moss.

The deal covers North America, Germany, Scandinavia, Greece, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia. It excludes China, Korea, and Japan. The film also stars Corey Stoll, Brian Dennehy, Mare Winningham, Jon Tenney, Glen Fleshler, Michael Zegen, and Billy Howle.

“The Seagull,” first performed in 1896, is set at a country estate where guests have gathered to watch a play. “‘The Seagull’ is the heartbreaking and funny story of friends and lovers, all of whom are in love with the wrong person,” Sony Classics said in a statement. “The movie is timely in its depiction of the tragic consequences of narcissism, particularly on young dreams and romantic love.”

Producers are Tom Hulce, Leslie Urdang, Bob Salerno, Jay Franke, and David Herro. Sony Classics is planning a 2018 release.

The deal was negotiated between Sony Pictures Classics, CAA, and Endeavor Content. Hyde Park International represents the remaining world rights.

Mayer said, “If I could dream up the perfect company to release my film, I would conjure Sony Classics. Michael Barker and Tom Bernard have released so many brilliant and varied films in the last nearly 30 years, it’s a huge honor to collaborate with them on the release of ‘The Seagull.’”

Here is a new interview of Saoirse at the Toronto Film Festival and she talks about ‘Brooklyn’, feminism and working in New York.

Ronan is renewing her Oscar buzz with Brooklyn, a story about an Irish immigrant in 1950s New York City written by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity,About a Boy).

While at the Toronto International Film Festival for Brooklyn’s premiere, ETonline sat down with the young star to discuss dating, feminism, and what happened while filming in the same town where two escaped killers were found.

ETonline: How are you? All talked out yet?

Saoirse Ronan: You know I’m doing OK. I do always get sick every time before I do a press junket though. It’s like I’m allergic to press or something.

Oh, thanks.

Yea, I’m allergic to you. Stay away from me!

Such a sweet part of Brooklyn was how Tony (Emory Cohen) courts your character, Eilis. Watching it, I thought, that’s just not ever going to happen to me–or my girlfriends–today. Read More

Variety reported that Saoirse joined the project for “The Seagull” alongside Annette Bening.

Saoirse Ronan and Annette Bening are set to star in a movie adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull,” which has been added to the Cannes sales slate of Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur’s K5 Intl.

The film will be directed by Michael Mayer, who won a Tony in 2007 for “Spring Awakening” and was nominated for “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” last year. It has been adapted by playwright Stephen Karam, who wrote Pulitzer Prize finalist “Sons of the Prophet.” The producers are Leslie Urdang (“Rabbit Hole”), actor-producer Tom Hulce (“Amadeus”) and Bob Salerno (“21 Grams,” “We Need to Talk About Kevin”).

Bening, who has been nominated for four Oscars, most recently appeared alongside Al Pacino in “Danny Collins.” Ronan’s latest credits include “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and Sundance player “Brooklyn,” which Fox Searchlight picked up for the U.S.

Also in “The Seagull” are Corey Stoll, who was Golden Globe nominated for “House of Cards,” and newcomer Billy Howle, who was a standout in Richard Eyre’s Olivier Award-winning production of “Ghosts.” Costumer designer is Ann Roth, and production designer is Jane Musky, with Matthew Lloyd taking on d.p. duties. The film is shooting in upstate New York this summer.

WME and CAA, which helped package the film, are also handling domestic rights.
