Speaking about his decision to come on board for the project, director Haynes said:
“What so appealed to me about Samy Burch’s exceptional script was how it navigated potentially volatile subject matter with a kind of observational patience that allowed the characters in the story to be explored with uncommon subtlety.”
May December will be written by Samy Burch and is set to be produced by Will Ferrell’s Gloria Sanchez Productions (who brought you Hustlers and Booksmart). Filming is slated to begin in 2022, so while it won’t be hitting our screens anytime soon, we can already tell it’ll be worth the wait.
