Susan Sarandon and Helena Bonham Carter have been billed to play the lead characters in the forthcoming drama "Eleanor & Colette". In companion with them, Sebastian Koch has been booked to play the male lead.
The Rolf Schuebel direction is based on Marc Bruce Rosin's script. The story follows Sarandon's Eleanor, a patient at a psychiatric institute, who retains Colette (Bonham Carter), an attorney, to represent her complaint against the hospital, which has been prescribing her psychopharmacological drugs. During the lengthy process, the two women bond and form a special friendship.
Filming has been scheduled to begin next spring, with locations take place in San Francisco, Vancouver and in Germany's North Rhine-Westphalia.
