Benedict and OLIVIA COLMAN to star in new divorce comedy ‘The Roses’


Three days ater The Cinemaholic broke the news, it’s now been confirmed that Benedict and Olivia Colman are set to star in and produce The Roses, a remake of the 1989 movie The War of the Roses, which is in turn based on Warren Adler’s 1981 homonymous novel.

The film has been up at Searchlight and will be directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Parents, Bombshell) and written by Tony McNamara (The Favourite, Poor Things). Benedict is producing under SunnyMarch and Olivia is producing under her South of the River banner.

According to Searchlight, this is the official synopsis:

Life seems easy for picture-perfect couple Theo (Cumberbatch) and Ivy (Colman): successful careers, great kids, an enviable sex life. But underneath the façade of the perfect family is a tinderbox of competition and resentments that’s ignited when Theo’s professional dreams come crashing down.

To say we’re EXCITED it’s an understatement!!
